The Lough Derg Marketing Group includes a range of stakeholder representatives from the three local authorities, Clare, Galway and Tipperary County Councils; Waterways Ireland, Inland Fisheries Ireland, Local Development Companies and local tourism providers. The Group is supported by Tipperary County Council, Clare County Council, Galway County Council and Waterways Ireland.

The Lough Derg Roadmap for Destination Development 2014-2017 established a strong basis for investment in the region and enabled the roll out of a number of successful initiatives.

We now need to refresh the vision and refine the focus to maximise the benefits for Lough Derg as a connected destination and great place to live and work.

We are keen to ensure that all who have an interest in shaping and promoting a truly exceptional visitor experience are involved in the realisation of this project.

As we would very much like to engage your understanding, expertise and experience in our work, we are inviting you to participate in a workshop at either of the following locations:

The Killaloe Hotel, Kincora Harbour, Killaloe, Wednesday 24th October 7.00pm

Irish Workhouse Centre, St. Brigids Rd., Portumna, Thursday 25th October 7.00pm

If you would like to be involved, please confirm your availability to attend by email to or by phone to Mairead at 0761066210 at your earliest convenience and not later than Monday October 22nd.

I look forward to seeing you there,

Joe MacGrath
