Ireland’s tourism board’s St. Patrick’s Day video will certainly make you glow with pride. Not only have they employed the dulcet tones of Liam Neeson for the voice over but they remind us that everyone wants to be a little bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.
The 60-second film includes fabulous footage shot around Ireland, interwoven with some wonderful images from Tourism Ireland’s Global Greening initiative, which sees famous landmarks and iconic sites illuminated in green each year to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.
Liam Neeson and Tourism Ireland are putting a call out to anyone with a love of, or interest in, Ireland to #GoGreen4PatricksDay – by watching and sharing the film – and then to come and experience all that the island of Ireland has to offer.
Liam Neeson said “I’m delighted to be helping Tourism Ireland celebrate St Patrick’s Day. It will be wonderful to see the world turn green again on 17 March as nations come together to celebrate the fun and warmth of the Irish.”
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. From Rome to Rio and from London to Las Vegas, a host of major landmarks and iconic sites around the world will be illuminated in green on 17 March – including the Colosseum, the Sacré-Cœur Basilica in Paris, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro and even the Equator Sign and Line in Uganda!
Tourism Ireland are certainly getting the hang of pulling on our heartstrings. We’re not quite over last year’s beautiful video below:
