Don't corporatise the Villa Gaeity says promoter

Corporatising the Villa Gaeity won't solve its financial diffculties - according to the promoter who backed out of the tender process.

TinyCOW Isle of Man Ltd. CEO Lee O'Hanlon says all that's needed is a better understanding of finance, and a smarter approach to event management.

The comments arise out of an ongoing dispute with the Department of Economic Development over the Sir Tom Jones gig, and the Jacksons concert in 2014.

Mr O'Hanlon claims mis-management at the venue has hit taxpayers with a £100,000 loss - which the DED has neither confirmed nor denied.

He explained what he believes should happen.
