Hundreds of Vikings are set to descend on St Anne’s Park in Raheny in Dublin this weekend – for the Battle of Clontarf Re-enactment, the largest battle re-enactment ever held in Ireland. A spectacular dress rehearsal for the ‘battle’ took place in southern Sweden last weekend, at the Fotevikens Museum in Höllviken.
Pictured are Desmond Burke, Tourism Ireland, with ‘Vikings’ Emma Greene (left) and Rebecca Birka (right), at the dress rehearsal.
Tourism Ireland is using the 1,000th anniversary of the famous Battle of Clontarf as a ‘hook’ to shine a spotlight on Ireland in Scandinavia right now. A busy programme of PR and publicity activity, as well as social media, is reminding prospective holidaymakers there about the historical links between their countries and ours – and inviting them to come and discover Dublin and the many other sites and attractions in Ireland with Viking connections.
Aileen Hickey, Tourism Ireland’s manager for the Nordic region, said: “The 1,000th anniversary of the Battle of Clontarf presents us with a wonderful opportunity to shine a spotlight on Ireland in Scandinavia and remind people in Norway, Sweden and Denmark about the historical links between their countries and ours. We are inviting them to attend next weekend’s re-enactment of the Battle of Clontarf or to come and discover some of the many fascinating sites and attractions in Ireland with Viking connections during 2014.”
Tourism Ireland has invited a group of influential travel and lifestyle journalists – from Norway, Sweden and Denmark – to attend next weekend’s Battle of Clontarf re-enactment. They will enjoy a fun Viking Splash Tour in Dublin and will explore some of our other Viking-related sites and attractions – including the Clontarf 1014 exhibition at the National Museum of Ireland, the Viking ‘Big Dig’ at Dublinia, Glendalough and Waterford.
The Shelbourne Hotel Dublin, increased its operating profits by 44% to €4.5m in 2012, according to a report in to-day's 'Irish Examiner'
The figure was revealed in accounts filed with the Companies Office by Shelbourne Hotel Holdings Ltd, with a note stating that the hotel’s key performance indicators continued to improve during 2013.
In January this year, US property investment firm, Kennedy Wilson secured control of the 265 bedroom Shelbourne after acquiring its debt for $152m (€110m).
The company increased its operating profits in 2012 after revenues increased by 12% going from €23.1m to €25.96m. However, interest payments totalling €4.1m resulted in a pre-tax profit of €437,941.
This followed the business recording a pre-tax loss of €2.53m in 2011.
