Travel Counsellors Support Travel Trade Family Fun Day 2016

Travel Counsellors Support Travel Trade Family Fun Day 2016

Travel Counsellors were delighted to be Silver Sponsor at the 2016 Travel Trade Family Fun Day, which took place on Sunday 28th August at Wanderers FC Rugby Club in Ballsbridge, Dublin. Sixty people travelled from all parts of the country to enjoy the family get-together.

The charity event was organised by members of the travel industry and this year’s event included some great fun activities such as a 5-a-side football tournament in which the Travel Counsellors team reached the quarter finals. Other activities enjoyed by TC children included mini-golf, novelty races – egg and spoon racing, sack racing, and much more.

Travel Counsellors were very visible in their bright pink t-shirts. The company held the competition for the children, nieces/nephews and grandchildren of TCs to design a t-shirt. The winner of the competition was Andre Bedford’s daughter Maolísa, aged 9, and her design featured on the TC t-shirts on the day, with the slogan: ‘Passion for Travel? It’s time to run your own business.’

Bernie Whelan, Travel Counsellors Ireland, said: “This day is a fabulous opportunity for people to share the fun side of the travel industry with their families – and for colleagues or peers in travel to meet each other’s families too.

“We had lots of our Travel Counsellors travel from all parts of the country to enjoy the family get-together, including from Cork, Galway, Louth, Kildare, Wicklow, Dublin and more. I really want to commend the organisers and the volunteers for all the hard work and preparation that is involved in organising this event. This family day is all the more special because it supports some great charities.”

Repro Free: Thursday 21st July, Dublin Airport:
Aer Lingus welcomed a piece of Irish aviation history into its hangar at Dublin airport today as it received a Douglas DC-3 aircraft hailing from the 1940s and 50s and freshly painted in the Aer Lingus livery of that era. The DC-3 was the fifth aircraft type to be operated by Aer Lingus in 1940 and at that time was part of a fleet of just 5, while today’s fleet now stands at 63 aircraft operating more than 100 routes to UK, Europe and North America. The DC-3 aircraft will feature in Bray Air Display and Foynes Air Show this weekend.
