A number of landmark buildings and monuments in Cork were illuminated green last night in celebration of St Patrick’s Day and to bring a sense of unity through light across both city and county.
In Cork City, over 40 iconic buildings and public spaces were lit up for the occasion including the Shakey Bridge and The Red Abbey.
Blarney Castle and Gardens was also illuminated in the festival colours ahead of the big day.
