Joe Walsh Tours 50th Anniversary

Joe Walsh Tours 50th Anniversary

To celebrate Joe Walsh Tours 50th Anniversary, a reunion organised by Grainne Caffrey (1986-95) of over 100 past and present employees gathered together on Friday 30th September in McGrattan’s off Baggot street to celebrate this special occasion. It was a chance to renew some old friendships, share stories and laugh at ancient memories, it was certainly a blast from the past.

Eileen Tuite (Corrib Travel) and Graine McCabe both reps with Joe Walsh Tours met once again after 30 years and rekindled their friendship as did many others. See facebook to catch up on the event. (JWT reunion)

Joe Walsh Tours was founded in 1961 by Joe Walsh, from Northern Ireland who began by first operating pilgrimages to Lourdes. As we rolled into the 80s, Joe Walsh Tours was Ireland’s leading tour operating offering holidays to a wide range of resorts in Spain, Greece, Portugal and Italy. The company operated the first computerised holiday reservation system in Ireland (and possibly the UK) and had some very cool TV advertisements.
