Cranns of Glory.🌲

In today’s column, I look at how boosting visitor numbers to Ireland’s forests together with ambitious national afforestation plans may foster a budding culture of forest tourism.

Cork | Frankfurt | Die Welt!🌍

Great to get some get some good travel news — for a change — with the announcement of the new @CorkAirport to @Airport_FRA route with @lufthansa, scheduled to take off on June 25th.

For our staycation special last weekend, I spoke to Niall Tracey of @Failte_Ireland about the trends of multiple staycation breaks for 2021, looking beyond the tourist hotspots and “the breadth of experiences” to be enjoyed on an Irish city break.☘️


Well this is new! Fair play to the Aussies for adding an equality anthem to this morning’s #ausopen women’s final and also giving Aboriginal languages and culture (I believe…in verse three?!) a global platform.

Certainly beats the the Sex and the City version.


I am strong… 💪
I am invincible…💪

Debra Byrne, Angie Hart and Chenile Chandler perform iconic anthem ‘I am Woman’ ahead of tonight’s #AusOpen women’s final.

30 great home holidays for 2021! Great to work with @Melmullan on this spread & can’t wait to experience some of these destinations this summer.🙏

Thanks to everyone who offered tips — consider this the first of *many* staycation specials this year! 🇮🇪
