Former Co Cork mayor Alan Coleman says depriving operators of a large share of the family market was proving detrimental

Cllr Coleman, who intends to run as an Independent candidate in the next general election, said depriving tourist operators of a large share of the family market at the end of August was proving detrimental.

“As many operators have mentioned to me, it is a long winter to survive and all opportunities need to be capitalised. In essence we need practical joined-up thinking between our elected Ministers to solve a very simple problem.”

In February 2014 the Department of Education issued a directive to schools standardising the dates for Christmas, Easter and midterm holidays, but did not give a clear instruction on the date schools should return from summer holidays.
