Bayern stadium to go green for St Patrick's Day

Germany's best-known stadium and Denmark's iconic statue will be lit up in green for St Patrick's Day.

The Allianz Arena, home of Bayern Munich, and the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen are among the famous spots around the world to be on the list of locations to play a part in the celebrations.

Over the past four years, Tourism Ireland has been getting a list of landmarks lit up in green for March 17.

Among the attractions to be lit up in recent years were a section of the Great Wall of China and the statue of Christ the Redeemer overlooking Rio de Janeiro.

The tourism board has drawn up an even longer list this year to be announced by Tourism Minister Leo Varadkar this morning.
