Boyne Valley goes green for St Patrick’s Day

Following on from the success of the ‘Illuminating Meath’ event to highlight 2018 EU-China Tourism Year on 7th March, this week Buvinda House in Navan will be turning from red to green!

As part of the annual ‘Global Greening’ for St Patrick’s Day 2018, the foyer of Meath County Council headquarters will be lit in green light, joining more than 300 famous sites and buildings across the world bathed in the colour of the Emerald Isle. Sites this year include Trafalgar Square in London, the Opera House in Sydney and Canton Tower in Guangzhou, China. In the Boyne Valley itself Trim Castle, the largest Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland, will go green to celebrate the festival.


This is the ninth year of the instantly recognisable campaign, and the green light that illuminates Buvinda House links the Boyne Valley with sites across the world. The Irish diaspora have travelled far and wide, but what makes Ireland unique is the warm welcome that awaits all those who come to the Emerald Isle, and in particular the lush green fields of the Boyne Valley.
