Last Thursday’s Dáil sitting made for interesting viewing for The Dealer, with rural TDs Marian Harkin and Michael Healy-Rae disagreeing on Ireland’s tourism capital.

During question time with the Minister for Business Heather Humphreys, who name-checked a number of rural gin brands in her replies, Healy-Rae asserted that Kerry was not only the tourism capital of Ireland, but the tourism capital “of the western world”.
