The Belfast Telegraph Holiday World show is on this weekend at the King’s Hall in Belfast. But this time it is not in the main building. It is in the Pavilions at the rear of the main hall. Usually I would come across a number of exhibitors from County Monaghan such as Castle Leslie but there was no sign of them. The Nuremore Hotel in Carrickmacross was listed in the map of stands but when I visited the stall there was another group of hotels (Maldron) there instead. I did come across Flavour of Tyrone and the Clogher Valley Caravan Park, both of which have been of assistance to the William Carleton international summer school.

The show runs at the RDS Simmonscourt in Dublin next weekend January 24th-26th.
