From Rome to Rio, and from London to Las Vegas, more than 180 iconic landmarks and sites around the world turned a shade of green as part of Tourism Ireland’s 2015 Global Greening initiative to celebrate the island of Ireland and St. Patrick. In a major coup for Irish tourism, these sites included the Colosseum in Rome, the Sacré Cœur basilica in Paris and Edinburgh Castle for the first time ever – as well as the Great Wall of China, Niagara Falls, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro and the famous ‘Welcome’ sign in Las Vegas. Nashville became a proud part of the greening movement in 2015 and intends to help spread the word and celebration of the wonderful island of Ireland.
