“I think it would be a positive step if we could get a meeting arranged between local stakeholders and Fiona Monaghan. I am today raising this issue with Minister Brendan Griffin. Local residents of the Seven Heads area expressed their frustration and disappointment to me last Friday at the fact that the peninsula is not directly included on the signed Wild Atlantic Way Route. They feel it is impacting on the local economy.
“The Wild Atlantic Way has been a tremendous success drawing visitors from around the world and can bring much needed revenue and tourism revenue to towns and villages along the route.
“Residents, tourism providers and stakeholders on the Seven Heads Peninsula feel that they have effectively been bypassed and that this is having a direct economic and social impact on the area. The peninsula has a rich beautiful and scenic landscape with a fascinating maritime history. With a little bit of engagement here, I think we can come to an amicable solution
