Tourism Ireland’s St Patrick’s 2016 programme spanned Great Britain, Mainland Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand, as well as emerging tourism markets like China, India, the Middle East and South Africa. More than 200 landmark buildings and iconic sites around the world went green to celebrate St Patrick’s Day. In Scotland, the SSE Hydro and the ‘Armadillo’ in Glasgow joined Tourism Ireland’s Global Greening once again this year.

 

Elaine Murray, Tourism Ireland’s Manager in Scotland, said: “We are delighted that Minister Sherlock was with us in Scotland 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. St Patrick’s Day traditionally marks the real start of the tourism season for us; 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.”
