Tourism Ireland has teamed up with the Irish Film and Television Academy (IFTA) to create a new series of short videos that showcase Ireland, the first of which features actor Pierce Brosnan.
In the video, Brosnan speaks about his love for Ireland and, in particular, for Co. Kerry and his hometown, Navan, Co. Meath. The video also features scenery and attractions such as the Ring of Kerry, Dingle, the Skelligs, Ross Castle, Cahergall Stone Fort Fort and the Reeks District.
The video has been created as part of Tourism Ireland's #FillYourHeartWithIreland (#FYHWI) online campaign. At a time when international visitors cannot travel here, Tourism Ireland is rolling out its #FYHWI campaign, sharing inspirational content about the island of Ireland with its followers on social media. The aim 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 Academy member Pierce Brosnan, to create this fantastic video. It will be seen by our 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."
Meanwhile, Áine Moriarty of the IFTA said, "IFTA is delighted to partner with Tourism Ireland to showcase the beauty of the Irish landscape alongside the voices and sentiments of our leading Irish Academy members such as Pierce Brosnan. Ireland has given so much to international film - our wonderful actors, filmmakers and spectacular filming locations. The Academy is proud to help showcase our beautiful country to the world."
