Listen to the sweet-sounding voice of Liam Neeseon in this new Tourism Ireland video inviting the world to come and visit Ireland.
"Every year on St. Patrick's Day, the world goes green. But here in Ireland, every day is bathed in green..." his dulcet tones delivers over the 60 second video which includes fabulous footage shot around Ireland, interwoven with some famous landmarks and iconic sites illuminated in green each year to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.
The video calls on anyone with a love of, or interest in, Ireland to #GoGreen4PatricksDay - to share the movie with friends and family around the world.
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 17 March as nations come together to celebrate the fun and warmth of the Irish.”
Famous attractions and sites around the world 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 on 17 March – including the Colosseum, the Sacré-Cœur Basilica in Paris, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro and even the Equator Sign and Line in Uganda!
Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “We are extremely grateful to Liam Neeson for his tremendous generosity in agreeing to help us promote the island of Ireland. He is an enormously popular, global personality and I am confident that the film we have created will be seen and shared by people across the world – inspiring them to put the island of Ireland on their holiday wish-list for 2015.”
