SOUTH LAOIS TOURISM ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING REPORT:
South Laois Tourism held their AGM on Thursday 18th December in Cullohill Community Centre. A well attended meeting included representatives from many organisations in South Laois and North Kilkenny. A successful period was reviewed which included the launch of the South Laois Cycle Trails, a Tourism Information Point, Trails and Heritage Brochures and the new Area Bus Service. Events such as the Ballagh Cycle Challenge, The MacGiollaPhadraig Way Walk and the RTE /John Murray and Nationwide visit to Cullahill were also highlighted.
The reopening of Grantstown Lake was seen as a huge plus for tourism in South Laois while the failure of the those in authority to carry out maintenance work on our Rivers was seen in a lesser light. On the night the following officers were elected: Chairman – Michael G Phelan; Secretary – Vincent O’Sullivan; Treasurer – Ger Alley.
