Following success in 2007, Tourism Ireland once again mounted a significant presence as a sponsor at the 2008 Pennsylvania Horticultural Show in Philadelphia, supported by 18 industry partners.
As part of the annual event Tourism Ireland commissioned garden designers Helen Dillon and Dermot O’Neill, BBC presenter John Cushnie, and the Knight of Glin to lecture on the Gardens of Ireland.
Tourism Ireland's participation included the sponsorship of an Irish Garden which featured musicians and exhibits by Irish heritage and cultural attractions.
At the Irish garden is Fox 29's TV weather anchor Sue Serio (centre) with John Cushnie and Helen Dillon.
