Dublin Airport will again join other landmark locations in Ireland and around the world this week by turning green for St Patrick’s Day.
Work on the annual greening of the main airport buildings gets under way this evening with the installation of lighting equipment, ahead of the big switch-on tomorrow evening.
Tony Rogers, of Dublin Airport Asset Care, who oversees the installation process said that “the greening of the airport for St Patrick’s week gets a lot of very positive feedback every year because it looks fantastic”.
A team of fifteen technicians from contractors Kevin Saunders Design will work on setting up and later dismantling the illuminations. The project involves more than 100 lighting units, 200 kilometres of cable and two generators.
The single most striking feature this year will again be the projection of a large moving “Happy St Patrick’s Day” logo on the eastern gable of Terminal 2.
Other locations turning green include the welcome flags on the airport entrance road, the chimney of the T2 Energy Centre, the internal entrance lobbies in T2, the road tunnel beneath T2, the closed walkways between T1 and T2, the T1 spirals, the gable of the T1 short term car park and the OCTB façade.
