Government buildings and national monuments in Ireland to be illuminated green for St. Patrick’s Day
In honor of this month’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, 27 sites around Ireland will be illuminated with green lighting from March 14 - 18.
The Journal reports that Ireland’s Office of Public Works has announced that 27 buildings and national monuments will be lit up green to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
The 27 Irish sites will be joining a wide array of other global sites that are set to go green for the holiday as well. Outside of Ireland, spots including the Pyramids at Giza, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the Empire State Building in New York City, among many others.
