A very successful event was held in the Strand Hotel in Limerick and all travel agents in the region were invited to come along for some training on United Airlines, and Chicago and its surrounding areas.

“We are really very encouraged by both the interest and number of bookings for the new service and with our partners we know this will be a very successful service,” said Yvonne.

Tony Brazil of Limerick Travel thanked all the suppliers who attended and assured them of the support of the trade.
