JUST 130 CLARE people have taken up an offer for cut-price tickets to view the 600ft-high Cliffs of Moher.

In the summer of 2010, the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre announced the introduction of a local pass costing €12 which would allow Clare people an unlimited number of visits to the cliffs and the exhibition centre  until the end of 2011.

The offer was announced before the introduction in August of a new €6 charge for adults to see the  attraction, the Examiner reports.

Director of the visitor centre, Katherine Webster, confirmed that so far between 110 and 130 people had taken up the offer of this local pass.

According to the Irish Times, a local Fine Gael councillor, Martin Conway, said that despite the disappointing figures: “It is far too early to label the scheme a failure”.

He said that people “just haven’t had the time to apply” and he expected the number of applications to rise in the summer time.
