My paper should, I am aware, be devoted to a statistical and
social review. I have discovered, however, that the subject is
eminently one which does not lend itself to statistics, and I propose
instead to treat it from a historical and an economic point of
view—in the first place, endeavouring to justify the title of paper
by showing that there is a Tourist Movement in Ireland, and
next (assuming that I have succeeded in establishing this fact),
dealing with its economic value to the country. In using the
term historical I have no intention of diving into remote antiquity.
Ireland has apparently always been a very attractive
country, and has had a very varied list of visitors; but while
some of them were extremely peripatetic, the "Tourist," in the
modern sense of the word, is the evolution of comparatively recent
times. I do not, therefore, propose to deal with the journeyings
of Strongbow or the tours of Oliver Cromwell.
