Kardashian wedding 'could help tourism industry'
30 May 2014

The Irish tourism industry is set to be one of the major beneficiaries of the recent wedding of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

The couple tied the knot in Europe in the last seven days and they have subsequently gone on their honeymoon to Ireland.

This, it has been suggested, could well lead to a spike in visitors in the coming weeks and months.

One person to have already claimed as much is a spokesman for Failte Ireland, who has said that their presence in the country is priceless.

"There is an expectation that they will probably tweet and, by social media, disseminate their experiences here and you can’t buy that,” he told the Irish Times.

“There will be a lot of people in the US and across the world who won’t necessarily have Ireland on their radar and it’s put us on the map for a new demographic.”ADNFCR-408-ID-801724886-ADNFCR
