Tayto Park No More

The county Meath theme park is set to get a new name some time next year.

In a statement, Founder Ray Coyle gave a statement saying that Tayto’s existing title sponsorship would cease at the end of the year and it would be renamed next year.

“Our partnership with Tayto Snacks has helped to create one of Ireland’s most popular tourist attractions in little over 12 years,” he said.

“We have decided that in order to expand and meet our ambitious targets for the park, now is the opportune time to rename the park to better reflect the exciting rides, attractions and zoo that are coming over the next few years.”

The theme park carried the Tayto name when it opened in 2010 under a sponsorship deal due to the involvement of Ray Coyle with Tayto Snacks.

“We now look forward to a new and exciting chapter for the park, with many new developments planned, including an investment of €30 million over the next two years,” Mr Coyle said.

“On behalf of myself and my team I would like to thank the management of Tayto Snacks for its belief in our vision.”

“It has been a very special partnership and we look forward to the year ahead and indeed continuing our journey and close relationship with Tayto Snacks.”

There has been over 5 million visitors to Tayto Park since it opened in November 2010. it is now one of Ireland’s most popular attractions.

John O’Connor, Managing Director of Tayto Snacks said”We extend our sincere thanks to the management and staff at the park for a very successful partnership over this past decade and look forward to further collaboration with them as we pursue new initiatives to support the ambitious plans we have in store for the Tayto brand in its next phase of growth.”
