This video showcasing the best of Ireland will be shown at hundreds of events around the world for St Patrick’s Day this year, featuring redheads, Irish dancers, green fields, Katie Taylor, our top creative talent, the multinationals we attract, “and those that left…”

Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore said: “St Patrick’s Day is a chance for us to talk directly to our diaspora and to the many people around the world who have an interest in Ireland. The next few days are an opportunity for us to extend that conversation to as many people as possible globally. Ireland has come through several tough years, and sometimes we need to be reminded – and the world needs to be reminded – of how much we have going for us. This video is about our people, our companies, our culture, our creativity and our country. There’s no better time to send a positive message about who we are.”
