Billionaire Buys Up Lough Erne Golf Resort Say Reports

Billionaire Buys Up Lough Erne Golf Resort Say Reports

#InlandWaters - Donald Trump isn't the only American billionaire eyeing up Ireland's premier waterside golf courses, as the Belfast Telegraph reports Tony Saliba has purchased the championship-calibre Lough Erne Resort.

Despite going into administration just four years after its opening in 2008, the five-star hotel and its accompanying Faldo Championship Golf Course will be the location of the Irish Open in 2017, after its successful hosting last year's G8 summit.

And the Co Fermanagh resort's £10m asking price was surely attractive for Chicago-based Saliba, dubbed one of America's 'market wizards' in the 1980s and reportedly an avid golf fan.

The Belfast Telegraph has more on the story HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
