There were 236 international buyers in attendance – from 17 countries – and tourism trade personnel got a golden opportunity to showcase their product and inform potential clients of what, exactly, they had to offer.

Of the buyers in attendance, 32 were new to the market and attending Meitheal for the first time.

They were treated to a lively welcome night at the Killarney Brewing and Distilling Company in Fossa, a farewell night at the Tan Yard and a number of other social events were organised for the duration of their stay.
