The Greening of Malin Head

Malin Head 2

Banba’s Crown, the outpost of north-western Europe was brought into the fold of St Patrick’s Day celebrations this year as Malin Head was given the epic ‘Greening’ treatment that has become a world-wide phenomenon on St Patrick’s Day over recent years.

Ireland’s most northerly point at Malin Head welcomed over 1,000 visitors each night to see Banba’s Crown bathed in green light, as this spectacular natural landmark of Donegal was given the ‘special places of interest’ treatment.

The structure is named in honour of the Patron Goddess of Ireland and Banba herself must have been smiling down from wherever it is that such dignitaries reside these days but she is sure to have been pleased by the little bit of magic that was brought to Malin Head on the nights of the 16th and 17th of March.
