March 17 is the day when everyone in the world wants to be Irish.
But unfortunately over the last number of years Ireland has had its problems. We had a massive economic bust, jobs were lost, small and large businesses crumbled, people lost their homes and tens of thousands of young people had to leave their family and friends to emigrate to all corners of the planet.
Thankfully we are beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel. There is an upturn in the economy, business owners can see green shoots (albeit tiny ones) in their order books and jobs and house prices are beginning to stabilise. Hopefully the dark days are behind us!
Failte Ireland have produced a wonderful little video showing all that is great in this little country of ours. It highlights Ireland’s strengths, and highlights the qualities that makes this little part of the world one of the best places to be.
If you’re Irish, stand up and be proud and of course share this video 🙂 If you’re not from Ireland why not pop over and give us a visit. You won’t regret it 🙂
