Use Orange for St Patrick's too

Published 18/02/2013

Tourism Ireland is making a big effort to shroud some of the world's most famous landmarks in green for St Patrick's Day.

Have they forgotten that there is another colour associated with Ireland? A colour that represents a significant number of people?

The colour orange is legitimately entitled to be used as a colour to represent Ireland. By not using orange, a significant portion of the people of Ireland and Irish identity is not being represented.
