Liam Cunningham Talks About His Love Of Ireland In New Tourism Ireland Video That Showcases Ireland

Tourism Ireland has teamed up with the Irish Film and Television Academy (IFTA) to create a new series of short videos to showcase Ireland, the latest of which features actor Liam Cunningham.

The series was launched last month with a video in which actor Pierce Brosnan talks about his love of Ireland.

In the latest video in the series, Liam Cunningham speaks about his love for Ireland and, in particular, for Kerry and west Cork. The video features scenery and attractions such as Galley Head Lighthouse, Sherkin Island, Glandore, Ross Castle, Clonakilty, Garnish Island, Gougane Barra, Mizen Head and Bantry House.

The video has been created as part of Tourism Ireland's #FillYourHeartWithIreland (#FYHWI) online campaign. At a time when international visitors cannot travel to Ireland, Tourism Ireland is rolling out its #FYHWI campaign, sharing inspirational content about Ireland with its followers on social media. The aim is of the campaign is to keep Ireland "top of mind" with prospective international visitors to help ensure that the country is in the best possible place to immediately start generating business for Irish tourism operators, when the time is right.


Tourism Ireland's director of markets Siobhan McManamy stated, "Tourism Ireland was delighted to work with the Irish Film and Television Academy, and with Liam Cunningham, to create this wonderful video. We are sharing the video with our millions of fans and followers on social media around the world, allowing us to keep the beauty of Ireland to the fore. While we may not be able to travel just now, this video will inspire people for their future visit."
