Fáilte Ireland collected statistics on on how many international tourists visited each of the Irish counties and then ranked them in order.  They also ranked the counties by how much money is spent on tourism in each county.  I think that Longford may be moving up after watching the Mossy Flood video about the county(Check out our post with Mossy).  We will see!
