Kicking off an extensive programme of St Patrick’s celebrations around the world, Tourism Ireland co-sponsored a special reception in the House of Lords in London today. The event, celebrating British-Irish relations, was attended by Agriculture Minister Michael Creed, Tourism Minister Shane Ross, members of the House of Lords and House of Commons, as well as leaders of the Irish community living in London, influential travel trade, business tourism and media contacts.
Today’s event in the House of Lords marks the start of a packed programme of promotional activity for Tourism Ireland around the world this week. Tourism Ireland’s St Patrick’s 2018 programme will span Great Britain, Mainland Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand, as well as emerging tourism markets like China and the Middle East. Over the coming days, hundreds of iconic landmarks and sites around the world will be illuminated in green – as part of Tourism Ireland’s 2018 Global Greening initiative to celebrate the island of Ireland and St Patrick. From Rome to Rio and from London to Las Vegas, a host of buildings and sites around the world will be turning a shade of green to celebrate our national day.
