The Irish test: Challenging our international guests on all things Ireland
Published 14/03/2014 | 15:38
The March Bank Holiday weekend is upon us and St Patrick's Day is just around the corner.
Thousands of international visitors have come from abroad to celebrate with us and toast their own sense of Irishness. But before they a handful of tourists descend on the Guinness Storehouse, we set a challenge for them.
These volunteers have agreed to take part in an Irish test, to see if they'll fit in during all the festivities.
So will they know what Dublin nightclub is a regular haunt of nurses and doctors?
Will they actually know where St Patrick is from?
Can they guess what the Irish for hello and goodbye is?
Watch the above video to find out.
