The minister’s busy schedule included attending the ‘Greening’ of the famous Grand Place in Brussels – which joined Tourism Ireland’s Global Greening initiative once again on 17 March, to celebrate the island of Ireland and St Patrick

 

Other famous sites taking part in Tourism Ireland’s Global Greening in Belgium included the Manneken Pis statue (“dressed” in a fun Irish costume), the city halls of Antwerp and Bruges, the Colegiate Church of our Lady and the Irish Saxophone in Dinant, the Celtic Cross in Fontenoy and the medieval Cloth Hall in Ypres. Almost 300 landmark buildings and iconic sites around the world have been going green as part of Tourism Ireland’s Global Greening initiative to celebrate St Patrick’s Day and to highlight the island of Ireland.

 

Danielle Neyts, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Belgium, said: “We are delighted that Minister Doyle was with us in Belgium for the important St Patrick’s period, to help us deliver the message about the many great reasons to visit the island of Ireland this year. People everywhere instantly identify St Patrick’s Day with the island of Ireland and that heightened profile allows us to put the Ireland holiday experience in the spotlight at this time of year. Our aim is to bring a smile to the faces of people everywhere and to convey the message that Ireland offers the warmest of welcomes and great fun, as well as wonderful scenery and heritage.”
