A major investment in the form of a casino development is planned for Ireland.
A 'super casino' resort is planned for the town of Dundalk, with the complex featuring many tourist grabbing facilities, and the planning stage is already under way.
Dundalk is on the east coast of Ireland, and is the county town for Louth.
It has had some socio-economic related problems in recent years, so is primed for strong economic growth.
A casino complex of this size should offer the town a much needed boost when it comes to tourist spending.
This comes at a time of recession, and talk in the media of online gambling being the new growth area for the gaming industry.
The multimillion investment is expected to pump a lot more business into the town, and into Ireland as a whole.
The planned development will take seven years to complete.
The complex will feature a number of facilities for visitors, including a dry ski slope, cinemas, swimming pools and bars.
It is expected that the complex will draw in visitors from overseas, and is due to cost hundreds of millions of dollars.
