first_imgThe Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA) has announced that it has become the first country in the Caribbean to join the transformational travel movement through a pioneering partnership with the Transformational Travel Council (TTC).The TTC unveiled its first 80 ally partners and these include tour operators, media organisations and travel suppliers from around the world.Director of the Guyana Tourism Authority, Brian MullisThis new partnership means Guyana will be joining a community of like-minded organisations around the planet that believe in transformation and are interested in networking, sharing, learning and collaborating with one another on how to shape the future of travel around these tenets, ultimately positioning Guyana as a destination thought-leader and early-adopter.“Guyana believes in transformation and that it happens from the inside out, often inspired by a journey, where awareness is heightened and traits of empathy and stewardship are cultivated, all leading to behaviour changes at home,” explained Director of the Guyana Tourism Authority, Brian Mullis.“We at the GTA are excited to learn more about the philosophy and how we can take it from theory to practice in a way that aligns with our destination’s strategic goals and initiatives. We have invited the TTC to come to Guyana and conduct a workshop for our destination’s key stakeholders, tour operators, accommodation providers and Indigenous communities,” he added.TTC’s ally partners have joined the #Transformation-alTravelMovement and have crossed the threshold into a new age of exploration.With their pledge to the TTC, they’ve signalled to their respective teams and prospective clients, guests, and travellers that their organisation believes that travel should be a relentless force for good. Transformational travel experiences empower people to make meaningful, lasting changes in their lives. The transformational travel movement provides an opportunity to transcend from a consumptive form of tourism to a responsible form of travel that has a sustained impact on travellers.TTC co-founder, Jake Haupert shared, “Guyana is an emerging and dynamic destination rich in biodiversity, cultural heritage, but yet also raw and real at its essence, making it a prime destination to start integrating the TTC philosophy and guiding practices into their entire tourism ecosystem and truly enhance their already unique, powerful and burgeoning story”.Guyana’s commitment to transformational travel is part of a larger strategy to continue to develop the destination in a sustainable and socially conscious way. Earlier this year, Guyana was awarded the title of Number One “Best of Ecotourism” destination at the Sustainable Destinations Top 100 Awards.Guyana increased nearly 16 per cent in 2018 over 2017 and new air routes continue to make the destination increasingly accessible from around the world.In May 2019, Guyana became the first eco-tourism country to join the transformational travel movement through a pioneering partnership with the TTC.last_img read more

first_imgDonegal student and tractor enthusiast Caitlín Mc Gonigle has been chosen for another mighty adventure in her Massey Ferguson.The 18-year-old has signed up to do a London-Mayo tractor run next year for charity.The thought of a six day journey in a 1961 Massey Ferguson 35x (without a cab) doesn’t faze young Caitlín because a passion for tractors is in her blood. Caitlín’s grandfather Paddy Duffy sadly passed away in December 2018. The Greencastle man was a true tractor enthusiast and he left his restored Massey Ferguson to Caitlín.Caitlin with her grandad Paddy Duffy Caitlín completed a Dublin to Mayo Tractor Run in memory of Paddy in April, and the success of that journey has inspired the Carndonagh Community School student to go to even greater lengths.The London to Mayo run, which launched this weekend, will take place in April 2020. Caitlín will be travelling alongside ten men, including Donegal natives Richard Doherty and Ciaran Rodgers, on the charity adventure for the Daisy Lodge centre for children with cancer in Mayo. Caitlín said it was an honour to be invited on the extreme run and she jumped at the opportunity.Again, she will be thinking of her grandad Paddy as she prepares to get on the road.“Grandad had a big impact on my life and it’s so nice to be able to give back in this way,” Caitlín said.The late Paddy DuffyCaitlín raised a fantastic €6,500 ahead of her first tractor run this year, and she has set a goal to go beyond that in 2020.Keep an eye on her fundraising page – Caitlín’s Tractor Run Dublin to Mayo – for fundraisers and updates in the lead up to her next big challenge.Clonmany’s Caitlín chosen for extreme tractor run was last modified: December 1st, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgSHEEPHAVEN SUB AQUA CLUB NOTES.Sheephaven divers had some super diving over the last week, with the first Wednesday evening dive of the year, followed on Saturday with a dive on the Frenchman’s Rock and finished off on Sunday with a trainee dive at Melmore Head. The Wednesday evening dive was conducted as a shore dive in PortnaBlagh Harbour and despite the relatively poor in-water visibility everyone involved had a great run out, thanks to Hugo Mc Fadden who led the dive party on a fine summers evening.Saturday morning’s dive was another first for the year when a Kevin Boylan led boat party conducted a two stick dive on the Frenchman’s Rock. Sea conditions on-site were just about acceptable with a one metre swelling coming in from the west.Dive times of up to 40 minutes were recorded for the 28 metre dive, with water temperature continuing to rise to a reasonably comfortable 10 degrees Celsius; in-water visibility at 28 metres was fairly good at about 5 metres horizontally.On-site the remains of the wreck of the Gaelic have been heavily scoured over the winter and much more apparent than in previous years. Marine life was abundant with plenty of big fish life present, including large Pollock, Ballan and Cuckoo Wrasse, Conger Eels and a number of Ling. Sunday mornings’ trainee dive was at Melmore Head where Ryan Ward led a three boat dive party in a two stick dive.It would appear that the effects of the winter storms have also taken their toll on the ruins on Melmore Head that overlooks the dive site, which appear to have reduced in size somewhat since last year. The ruins are all that is left at this location of one of a ring of 12 signal towers that was built around Donegal coast between 1804 and 1806.They were built in response to the series of French invasions along the Irish coast in 1798, but by 1805 the French invasion threat had diminished and the towers were subsequently abandoned by 1809.Each of the towers was in line of sight of two others and in the case of Melmore Head there are companion towers on Horn Head to the west and Fanad Head to the east. This allowed for flag signals to pass quickly along the coast in the event of another French fleet arriving along the Irish coast.The design of each of the two story towers followed a similar pattern consisting of a building 9m tall and a floor area of 4.5m x 4.5m, with the walls at 0.6m thick. The door was accessed by ladder, which could be pulled up in the event of an attack, while over the door and each corner there were protruding machicolations, which allowed the troops present defend the tower in the event of attack. Unfortunately the tower at Melmore Head is now a total ruin and appears to have suffered particularly badly last winter.On Sunday the sea had calmed down from Saturday morning but the big Spring tide had left a strong current running at the headland. Nonetheless some of the dive party got onto the headland cave and chimney, while the rest followed the curve of the bay back towards Reveney Island. Dive times of up to 40 minutes were recorded to depths of over 25 metres, with water visibility at between 3 and 5 metres due to a significant plankton bloom in the area and there was plenty of large fish around including a decent shoal of juvenile Pollock. Thanks once again to all the dive leaders over the week and to the club members who towed boats and filled bottles, as always many hands makes for light work.Top of FormBottom of FormSHEEPHAVEN SUB-AQUA CLUB DIVE ON THE FRENCHMAN’S ROCK was last modified: May 24th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:ClubDivingSport SheephavenSub-Aqualast_img read more

first_imgA remote Donegal island hotel that has attracted attention from buyers from across the globe after it was put on the market in recent weeks has had it asking price dropped by €25,000. It comes following the closing date for offers was on Saturday last. The famous 14 bedroom Óstan Thóraigh or Tory Island hotel had a price tag of just €400,000, around the price of a three-bed apartment or less than a three-bed semi in Dublin.However, despite interest from potential buyers who have visited the remote island,  nine miles off the Donegal coastline, including an American priest, a Belgium hotelier and a couple from Dublin, its owners have dropped the property’s asking price to €375,000.Last month, an estate agent has blamed Brexit, an increase in VAT rates and poor publicity for a failure to sell a unique island hotel off the coast of Donegal.Asking price falls for Tory Island hotel by €25,000 was last modified: September 2nd, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
