Global Greening Marks St Patrick’s Day

Ten years ago, Tourism Ireland approached the authorities in New South Wales, Australia, to ask if they’d consider lighting up the Sydney Opera House green on St Patrick’s Day. The occasion was the 200th anniversary of the first reception held for the Irish in Australia, by the then Governor of New South Wales, Lachlan Macquarie. It was a significant gesture from Australia – which has since been extended by many countries around the globe, in honour of our patron saint.
