A golfing event has won a major tourism award
The 2012 Irish Open at Royal Portrush was named event of the year at an annual tourism awards ceremony in Belfast after it became the first-ever European Tour tournament to sell out.
The ceremony was organised by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board (NITB) in partnership with Diageo Northern Ireland.
Whether taking part in activities such as golf overseas as a professional or simply as a hobby, everyone should take out
sports travel insurance.
The gala dinner celebrated a big year for the tourism industry on the back of the "Our Time, Our Place" promotional campaign. The new £97 million Titanic Belfast visitor attraction in the old shipyard where the vessel was built received the outstanding contribution award. Martin McCrossan, of City Tours in Derry, was among other major winners, walking away with the local tourism hero award.
Tourism Minister Arlene Foster said at the event in the Waterfront Hall: "Tonight we can applaud the best in tourism and all that is great about our industry after what I believe was one the most significant years in its history."
