Calls for Tourist Information Office in the Bogside

A Derry Councillor is calling on tourism authorities on both sides of the border to consider setting up a satellite Tourist Information Office in the Bogside.

Sinn Fein Tourism Spokesperson Maeve Mc Laughlin says the unique history of the Bogside offers a potential that isn't uitilised at the moment.

She says a dedicated office staffed by people with intimate knowledge of the recent as well as ancient history of the area would ensure a positive and well informed visitor experience, as well as creating opportunities for local people.
