Donegal Castle will be lit up in green light for St Patrick's Festival. Pictured here Princes Charles and Camilla being entertained on their visit to the castle.
The Office of Public Works (OPW) will be ‘greening’ State buildings for the duration of the 2017 St. Patrick’s Festival - among the buildings listed, and the only one on their list in this county, is Donegal Castle.
This is the fifth year that OPW will ‘go green’ for the festival and it underscores the important role that the Office plays in the provision of property and heritage services throughout the country. OPW will light State building and heritage sites for the duration of the festival – 16 - 19 March 2017 by using green filters, specialist lamps and existing lighting control systems.
