Not quite in the Paddy's Day mood? This Liam Neeson-narrated clip might change your mind
Look at all that lovely green greenery…

WE HERE IN Ireland can sometimes feel a bit of St Patrick’s Day fatigue in the weeks leading up to the big event.

Oh, great, Shamrock shakes. Please keep making more green beer and insulting t-shirts. Oh no no, continue to call it St Patty’s Day. By all means, tourists, jam up Temple Bar while wearing leprechaun suits.

Just when you think you might be getting fed up of the colour green, take a look at this wonderful minute of pure St. Patrick’s Day patriotism.

To top it all off, the beautiful Tourism Ireland video is narrated by the velvety-voiced legend that is Liam Neeson.
