    Diaspora centre a future tourist attraction?

    By admin | January 16, 2007

    Minister for Tourism John O’Donoghue has suggested he would support an tourist attraction that would tell Ireland’s emigration story.

    “I would accept there is a case for a new attraction such as an Irish diaspora centre, based on something like the Ellis Island museum in New York”, he is quoted as saying in the Sunday Times. Mr O’Donoghue made the remarks as he discussed raising Ireland’s tourism potential through the development of cultural and tourism centres.
