AFP, DUBLIN

“St Patrick’s Day is an icon of Irishness the world over and from a business point of view, it’s hugely important to the tourism sector in Dublin and essentially kicks off the Irish tourism season,” Dublin Chamber of Commerce president Gina Quin said.

“We expect 800,000 people to be involved in the festivities in the city, with 120,000 of those fresh visitors coming from overseas,” she added.
