There are calls for a special fund to be allocated to North Tipperary to promote “The Lakelands” initiative.

Local councillors believe that the area is only on the periphery of projects like Ireland’s Ancient East and all that Lough Derg has to offer is missing out.

Cathaoirleach Phil Bugler wants the authority to write to the Tourism Minister to ask for specific funding to promote The Lakelands.

Independent Councillor Mattie Ryan Coole says they should be spearheading the promotion of Lough Derg
