The US delegation numbered 14 people from various locations in the United States while the Irish locations and attractions earmarked for their visit included Waterford, Cork, Kerry and Dublin.….Carmel organised flights, hotels, transport, meals, business meetings etc and leisure activities that included golf, spas and sightseeing events at the various locations. Thanks to Carmel, scheduling and agendas for the 5 days of activities went like clockwork resulting in the US delegation having a fabulous memorable time in Ireland.”
