Scenes from two the recent Star Wars Films have been shot off the coast of Donegal and Kerry. In order to continue to maximise the connection with Ireland, Coman and his Tourism Ireland colleagues had a Stand at the London event. Described as the ‘ultimate fan experience’, the event runs over three days each year, attracting tens of thousands of dedicated Star Wars fans from around the world. It therefore provided a superb opportunity for Tourism Ireland to promote the island of Ireland.
