Ribbon cut on new Strabane tourism development

Tourism Minister Arlene Foster enjoys a cup of tea with Strabane District Council chairman Thomas Kerrigan and the owner of Finn Valley Cottages Ann Speer.

Tourism Minister Arlene Foster has officially cut the ribbon on a new self catering tourism development in Strabane.

Launching Finn Valley Cottages today, the Minister said she hopes the development will provide a boost to tourism across Tyrone.


Speaking at the official opening at the Glebe, the Minister said: “This marvellous facility offers accommodation finished to a very high standard for visitors to a region that offers so much for tourists, especially those seeking exciting activity holidays in one of our most picturesque areas.

“It is an excellent example of the type of high quality investment that we are keen to encourage and to help businesses wishing to support the extensive campaign by the Executive and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board to grow tourism revenues here.

“Encouragingly, more schemes like this are being put forward to NITB by local businesses as tourism here continues to grow in strength. Local entrepreneurs are responding to the success of the ni2012 campaign and the major events that have taken place already and of those yet to come both this year and next,” Mrs Foster said.
