Ireland focuses on LGBT sport to attract the "pink pound"

From this article promoting Ireland as a gay tourist destination:

Tourism Ireland says it promotes Ireland as a gay-friendly holiday destination at various gay sporting events, including this year's Gay Games in Cologne. At the World Outgames in Copenhagen last year, it even promoted special low airfares to Ireland with the slogan "learn a little Gaylic and get to know the locals".
