Both parties are delighted to have a satisfactory and positive outcome to this matter and look forward to working together for the remainder of the 2020 season. Moreover everyone looks forward to a more successful tourist season in 2021. We all encourage everyone to support the unique experience that is Spike Island Visitor Attraction, a publicly owned exposition of our history and culture that is vital for our workers, Cork Tourism and our local economy.
