We're looking for Irish people around the world to send us a short "Happy St. Patrick's Day" video message to be included in RTÉ One's TV coverage of the St. Patrick's Festival Parade this year.
With the theme of this year's parade focusing on 'Story Telling', we're inviting Irish people all over the world to join in the celebrations by sending a message back home.
All you need to do is record yourself on a mobile phone, digital camera or any video device in landscape mode (turn your phone sideways!) and send it to us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or alternatively, via WhatsApp to 087 270 2730.
Don't forget to choose a backdrop that shows your location in the world! This will help everyone at home in Ireland see where you are – e.g Statue of Liberty, Sydney Opera House etc. Also, feel free to get into the spirit of things by dressing up and wearing something green!
· Your message must not exceed 8 seconds in duration.
· Your clip cannot have any association with alcohol.
The deadline for submissions is midday on Monday, 11th March 2019.
By sending us your recording, you consent to your image being featured on television and across social media worldwide as part of the St Patrick's Day Parade live broadcast.
"Hello to everyone back home in Ireland, Happy St. Patrick's day from Dubai".
Here's a look at some of last year's messages for inspiration:
