St. Patrick's Day is a celebration for Irish people and those who love Ireland, all over the world. Over the last six years, Tourism Ireland's Global Greening campaign has seen world-famous icons and sites across continents light up green to celebrate our national day. The Empire State Building in New York, Niagara Galls in north America, the Sacré-Cœur Basilica in Paris, the Allianz Arena in Munich, the Colosseum in Rome, the Sky Tower in Auckland, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio, the London Eye and the Great Wall of China - to mention just a few of last year's 180 participating sites - see more at: https://www.tourismireland.com/GoGreen4PatricksDay
