As the old saying goes ‘everyone is Irish on St Patrick’s Day’ and these photos from around the world 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.
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.
