A quarter of a billion dollars was raised for Ireland during Kingsley Aikins’ twenty one years with the Worldwide Ireland Funds.

Every year, on St Patrick’s Day, the whole world seems to get a little bit greener. The global roll call of locations taking part in the festivities grows ever longer, as St Patrick’s celebratory events take place from Shanghai to Sydney and even in Scottish fields. In this interview with Niall Gibbons of Tourism Ireland, I look at how the business of fun is so successfully managed in Ireland and what tourism means to Irish business.

On St Patrick’s Day we celebrate all things Irish. But not just the Irish and not just in Ireland do we celebrate. With the recent “shout out” from Enterprise Ireland about it being the best place for Start-Up businesses and RTE’s “How to be Irish” on St Patrick’s night I thought it would be interesting to chat to a few people from different walks of life and different nationalities about Ireland and the Irish. And being Welsh myself I got a say too

Recently, I’ve been lucky to be invited to help and support two wonderfully innovative Irish tourism social media campaigns, run by some great people and that achieved outstanding results.

In the run up to St Patrick’s Day, I have been working with fellow social media volunteers and we have come up with a Shamrock Urself! – a Facebook specific application that enables people to add a Shamrock Stamp to their profile picture.

At a time like this we can all do our bit to tell the world about this great little country and this video has the right message so go SHARE IT!
