#CruisePromotion – The Southern Star writes, that communities in West Cork have been asked to play an active role in attracting the cruise ship operators to the region.

Five key people involved in the initiative gave a concise presentation at the Celtic Ross Hotel last Thursday and explained how the proposal could be of commercial benefit to the region as a whole.

The chairman of the Western Committee of Cork County Council, Mary Hegarty, explained how traditionally Glengarriff does well out of visiting cruise ships coming into Bantry Bay.

Historically, she said, the largest of these came in 1951, with a cruise ship that was carrying 1,000 passengers and 600 members of staff. However, today some of the very big cruise liners docking in places like Cobh can carry up to 4,000 passengers.

She said the market that West Cork needs to concentrate on are the type of cruises that can take 12 people on a guest liner, 50 people on a touring holiday, or 130 people who are interested in adventure activities and outdoor pursuits.
