New Appointment for Aine Brady TD

Aine Brady TD Fianna Fail T.D. for Kildare North Aine Brady is the newly appointed Chairperson of the Arts Sports and Tourism Party Policy Committee.

"This position will allow me to reflect the views of Fianna Fáil to my colleagues on the Arts Sports and Tourism Committee."

"As a representative for Kildare North I obviously have priorities for my own area, but I know that these priorities are reflected across the country by other Deputies."

"I have been a long time supporter of a swimming pool at Leixlip and know that access to a local pool is an issue for those in other large towns around the country."

"Kildare has huge Tourism potential with resources such as the Canal and its Walkway, Equestrian pursuits."

"I recently attended the Failte Ireland launch of their Tourism Development Plan for the East and Midlands Region.

"It is estimated that the East and Midlands Region will generate €505 million in tourism revenue by 2010 with more than 900,000 holiday visitors set as a target."

"I was pleased to see such a well thought out and detailed plan for the area. I know this will be replicated in other parts of the county."

"It is also a priority of mine to support the Community Arts Groups both in Kildare and around the country as this is often the first contact people have with the arts and makes the arts accessible to all."

"I look forward to hearing the views of my Fianna Fáil colleagues on these issues and representing their views to the Arts Sports and Tourism Committee," concluded Deputy Brady.
