    Does anyone know of any local registers of foreign language speakers who could be called upon to volunteer their services to assist visitors who are unable to communicate e.g. to explain how things work in a self catering property or to give advise on what to see and do in the area. If you have any contacts who could help or know if this exists please contact the Visit Armagh team.
