Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has said that the success of the Irish Open in bringing people into South Down needs to be built upon. golf55Speaking to Newry Times, Ruane said, “I would congratulate the organisers of the Irish Open for selecting the Royal County Down course at Newcastle for this years’ tournament. “Already we have seen the interest in the Irish Open with large crowds attending the first few days and the event being sold out over the weekend. However we cannot allow this event to pass us by without building on the potential that its presents for the entire South Down area. “South Down has many attractions from the St Patrick’s trail to its natural assets of unspoilt beaches and the Mourne Mountains. She added, “I will be looking for the Minister of Enterprise Jonathan Bell, local councils and businesses to help develop a strategy that maximises this opportunity by creating a major promotion campaign over the next few weeks.”
