Peter Downey, ISCF’s New Chairperson

Following our recent AGM of the Irish Self Catering Federation, we are pleased to introduce our new Chairperson, Peter Downey. Peter is a long standing member of the Federation and a Director of the Company. Peter’s strong back ground in self-catering and excellent interpersonal and organisational skills have made him a natural choice to lead the Federation in the coming years.

The role of the ISCF is to promote and protect the interests of its members. Members who market thousands of holiday homes across Ireland and who collectively employ thousands of people on a full time and seasonal basis throughout the Irish tourism sector. The ISCF supports members by promoting positive development of the self-catering accommodation sector in Ireland, and through cost saving benefits, marketing and PR initiatives, training and information. We recognise the knowledge and experience held within Failte Ireland and we want to avail of their guidance to strengthen our sector. The ISCF looks forward to working alongside self-caterers and supporting agencies to promote the self-catering sector in Ireland which is a much needed resource to alleviate the short term accommodation shortage.
