Liam Neeson wishes the world Happy St. Patrick’s Day

This Tourism Ireland video wishing everyone a happy St. Patrick’s Day is causing a few misty eyes today across the diaspora community

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 around 17 March – including the Colosseum, the Sacré-Cœur Basilica in Paris, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, 7 World Trade Center in New York, Nelson’s Column in London and even the light rail system in Addis Ababa.

Watch the video here:

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 March 17 as nations come together to celebrate the fun and warmth of the Irish.”

Niall Gibbons, Tourism Ireland’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “He is an enormously popular, global personality and I am confident that this film will be seen and shared by people across the world – inspiring them to put the island of Ireland on their holiday wish-list for 2016. It’s a fun and innovative way to get people talking about the destination.


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.
