Calling all Irish abroad - RTÉ want your best St. Patrick's Day video greetings for this year's festival

Get involved...

RTÉ has put out the call for Irish ex-pats across the globe as they look to put together the ultimate St. Patrick's Day celebration.

'Home' is the theme of this year's parade, and so Irish people scattered all over the world are invited to get involved with the celebrations and send a special greeting back home.

Should yours be selected, it will feature on RTÉ One's TV coverage of the St. Patrick's Festival Parade, where it should look something like this:

Be sure to choose a backdrop that shows off the location you're in, so make good use of those world-famous landmarks if you've got one nearby.

A couple of requirements to note before you give it your best:

  • Your message must not exceed eight seconds in duration.
  • Your clip cannot have any association with alcohol.
  • Not a requirement per se, but wearing green wouldn't be the worst idea.

Sound like you or anyone you know?

All you need to do is record yourself on a mobile phone, digital camera or any video device - in landscape mode only so turn that thing sideways - and send it via email to parade@cocotelevision.ie, or via WhatsApp to 087 100 7202.
