As part of the series the Institute welcomed Mr Mark Mohan who is Ireland's Ancient East Manager at Fáilte Ireland, with responsibility for counties Louth, Meath, Monaghan, and Cavan.

He reviewed the recovery of the tourism sector after COVID-19 and the positive actions that Fáilte Ireland has implemented in moving quickly to help the industry. He then introduced the researchers, staff, and students to the vision for Ireland’s Ancient East to 2032. Mark has developed a focus on regional brand strategy and sustainable tourism management which he shared at this lecture.
