Poll: Will the Kim-Kanye visit give the economy a boost?
Tourism bosses reckon a Tweet from either of the celebrity couple could be a major boon to the sector. What do you think?

GRAMMY-WINNING RAPPER and celebrity-without-portfolio Kim Kardashian swept into Ireland for their honeymoon on Sunday — an event that relegated the election results to the inside pages in some of the tabloids yesterday.

Failte Ireland say the presence of the celebrity couple could provide a tourism boost for the country. The pair have over 30 million Twitter followers between them, meaning a single photo or reference could help draw new visitors, according to the tourism body.

What do you think? After all, we went to the trouble of hiring Chris Hadfield, essentially for the same purpose.

Is the Kimye visit good for the economy?
