What do people around the world really think about Ireland? It's a tricky question. One Irishman decided to take to the streets of New York - where better? – to find out.
This summer, Colm Flynn, a presenter and producer for RTÉ One and the BBC, headed to New York's Union Square and Times Square to ask people what they knew about and associated with Ireland.
The results were interesting, to say the least!
In this five-part miniseries published to IrishCentral's Facebook page every Wednesday from October 18 - November 15, we'll hear what people had to say on everything from Irish men and women, to the famine, to their Irish ancestry, to beer (that ubiquitous association), to whether passing through Dublin Airport counts as visiting Ireland, to... where exactly Ireland is on the globe.
