“I was very impressed by the Freedom Trail when I visited Boston recently, and I’d like to see something similar in Dublin,” the Minister said.

“Although a lot has already been done to bring Irish history to life, there’s a clear gap in the market for a tourism trail to guide visitors around pivotal locations associated with 1916 and other key moments in our history.

“That’s why I have asked Fáilte Ireland, the National Tourism Development Authority, to draw up plans for an Independence Trail,” he said.
