Photo competition


On St Patrick’s Day, the world goes green!

On March 17, the world turns itself green to celebrate St Patrick’s Day! Across the globe, ancient monuments, shiny new landmarks and iconic buildings are all greening up in honour of Ireland and St Patrick. Famous sites like Rome’s Colosseum, the London Eye, Oslo’s Holmenkollen ski jump, Niagara Falls, and even the Great Wall of China, have all turned green and joined the party.

See global greening images from 2015!

And now, it’s your turn!

As we start the countdown to St Patrick’s Day on March 17, we are inviting you to get involved in the fun too! 

Share a photo of your ‘greening’ with us and have the chance to win 1 of 5 Ireland goodie bags, and the top prize of an accommodation voucher for worth €300! Our ‘green’ panel of judges will select 5 winners, one of whom will win the top prize. We will give extra points for humorous captions and creativity! Be as creative as you like, your home, your office, your car or bicycle, your family or friends – anything can be ‘greened’.
