Seeing Green

Seeing Green

Tomorrow is St. Patricks Day, our national holiday here in Ireland. If there's one day that's synonymous with Ireland around the world it's St. Patricks Day. The other thing that's probably most associated with our little country is the colour green.

Ireland is indeed a green country, and even here in the city of Dublin, green is all around. And it's a rich wonderful green. A while ago, I was coming home on a flight from abroad, and as we approached the coast of Ireland I looked out the window and I realised just how we got the reputation for the colour green and the name "The Emerald Isle". 

As our plane approached the coast of Ireland, I could see the beautiful rich dark greens of the rolling hills of wicklow and Dublin, and I felt a sense of pride and homecoming at the sight of that most wonderful colour.

So in celebration of St. Patricks Day and the greens of Ireland, here's a selection of "Green" images from the Streets of Dublin archive. Enjoy, and Happy St. Patricks day.

Happy St. Patrick's Day
