Alliance Councillor Patrick Clarke believes the 2015 Irish Open which will be staged in Newcastle from 26th to 31st May 2015 will promote Newcastle to a major global audience and will be a massive economic and tourism boost for businesses and the hospitality industry in Newcastle and Down District. Councillor Clarke was speaking after attending the ‘Irish Open 2015 – The Tourism Potential’ workshop which was organised by Down District Council. Clarke stated, “Next year will see Newcastle host the 2015 Irish Open with the European golfing event been played at the world famous links course at the Royal County Down golf club. “As a Newcastle Councillor I believe the publicity, media coverage and global PR exposure for Newcastle, Down and Mourne will be absolutely enormous. “The 2015 Irish Open will give this part of County Down a major tourism and economic boost and I am more than confident that the many local businesses in Newcastle and surrounding areas particularly in the hospitality sector will be gearing up for this major event. “This is a very unique opportunity for all businesses in Newcastle to fully embrace the Irish Open and to benefit from the increased visitors and footfall who will be shopping, staying in accommodation and enjoying the hospitality and night time economy,” he insisted. “Down District Council officers across the various departments are already planning ahead for this major European sporting golf event coming to Newcastle and will be over the coming months meeting and working with all key stakeholders involved with the 2015 Irish Open coming to Newcastle.”
