Tourism Ireland has released a new video called “All About the Weather on the Island of Ireland” – giving prospective visitors the lowdown on our weather, when we sometimes have four seasons in one day! It’s a quirky guide, informing viewers about the island of Ireland’s climate, average temperatures each season and what to pack – and letting them know that “it’s even been known to rain from time to time”!
The 55-second film is now live on YouTube and can be viewed here
. It’s being promoted through Tourism Ireland’s social platforms, including Facebook (3.6 million fans worldwide), Twitter (355,000 followers) and YouTube
