Tourism Ireland wishes the world a Happy St Patrick’s Day

New Tourism Ireland film celebrates the greenest day of the year and invites the world to visit the island of Ireland

Tourism Ireland has unveiled a new online film for St Patrick’s Day 2017, to encourage prospective holidaymakers to come and visit Ireland this year.

The 60-second film includes wonderful footage shot around the island of Ireland, interwoven with some great images from Tourism Ireland’s Global Greening initiative – which sees hundreds of famous landmarks and iconic sites across the globe illuminated in green each year to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.

Last month, Tourism Ireland announced details of some of the famous attractions and sites around the world which will join its Global Greening initiative this year to mark St Patrick’s Day.
