World goes green for St Patrick's Day

As the old saying goes ‘everyone is Irish on St Patrick’s Day’ and these photos from around the world in 2015 would seem to suggest there is some truth in that.

Some of the most famous landmarks on the planet have been bathed in green to celebrate Ireland’s national day.

The green light shining onto the landmarks against the night sky can create a fantastic effect.

World goes green for St Patrick's Day

St Patrick’s Cathedral and Trinity College in Dublin are two of the places to have gone green, but the trend has spread far further afield.

Famous landmarks in European cities such as London, Paris and Berlin have gone green. It has even spread to the Egyptian Pyramids, Niagara Falls on the border of the USA and Canada and the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil.

Take a look at some of the most famous landmarks in the world bathed in green.
