Pics: The world turns green for St Patrick's Day

Hundreds of landmarks across the world have turned green.

AROUND 300 LANDMARKS in 50 countries are looking a little bit more Irish today.

Buildings are being lit up in green for St Patrick’s Day, all part of the Global Greening initiative from Tourism Ireland, now in its ninth year.

Here’s a selection of the greenery from across the world.
