Councillor Patrick Connor Scarteen, Chairman, Kenmare Municipal District, was in Frankfurt at the weekend to promote the county and meet with the Kerry County Council’s Partners in Frankfurt-Hoechst.

The original link with Frankfurt was made with Tralee in 2009 and extended countywide in 2014.
The Vereinsring Hoechst promote Kerry at their various events including their month-long Castle Festival or Schlossfest which takes mid-summer and Christmas Market in November.

The group also organise the Germany Rose of Tralee selection event and members visit the county regularly.

Cllr. Connor Scarteen met with officers of the Verinesring, with the new Consul General of Ireland, Ms. Anne-Marie Flynn, and held a separate meeting with Ms. Nadine Lehmann, manager of the German speaking markets of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, who is based in Frankfurt.
He was accompanied by the Council’s Tourism Officer, John Griffin.

Ms. Lehmann said that consumer and trade interest in Kerry was already up following the DER TOUR Academy Workshop in Killarney in April where over 200 travel agents experienced Kerry at first hand.

Cllr. Connor Scarteen stressed the importance of supporting the Frankfurt-Hahn to Kerry air link.

A number of tourism initiatives were discussed which will be advanced during the coming months.
