Dubai's Burj al Arab, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, New York's Empire State Building, the London Eye – now, Copenhagen’s Little Mermaid statue will join the ranks of the world’s most famed landmarks to turn green in honour of St Patrick’s Day. 

 

The ‘Go Green’ campaign started three years ago when the Sydney Opera House was the first to be doused in green light in honour of St Paddy’s. 

 

Irish expat Siobhán Kelleher, who organises the lighthearted Three Legged Charity Race in Denmark, announced the news on the event’s website, saying, “Who better to raise Ireland’s tourism profile than us – the Irish Diaspora.” 

 

In addition to the Three Legged Race, Copenhagen will host a St Paddy’s Day parade, and many pubs in town will be joining in on the festivities. 

 

The Little Mermaid will be ceremoniously lit green on March 16.
