The Roots of Tourism Ireland


The oak tree has had a cherished place in the Irish landscape in both ancient and modern times, and this exhibit from Tourism Ireland highlights the tree’s role in fairy lore. The loss of oaks is a major issue in contemporary Ireland, and the exhibit encourages the replanting of these sacred trees. You’ll also see this strange-but-wonderful light effect.

And don’t forget to see Tourism Ireland in the bustling Marketplace section of the Show! Hurry, the Show closes today!
