St. Patrick’s Week: #IrelandInspires

It can only be a matter of time before some wag back home makes a parody of this, but in the meantime enjoy this uplifting, positive video put out by the Irish Government to help sell Ireland to the world. It’s filled with shots of rolling greenery, beautiful redheads, lovely horses, and one very famous goalkeeper.

There are some interesting statistics about how good and nice and kind we are, and for a tourist video about Ireland, I’m pleased to report it is Bono-free, nor are there any garishly made-up, spray-tanned, orange Irish dancers to be seen.

  1. Ah…Bono free! Now you’re talking Niall.
    I think I have seen a version of this as a TV ad in England.
    I went to Limerick once, and also Belfast, but there’s lots more to explore.
    Regards as always, Pete.
