Ireland Forty Shades of Green?

40 Shades of Green

Soon people worldwide will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and the wearing of the green. Green beer, dying rivers green, flooding the Pyramids and Las Vegas with green spotlights – those who are Irish or Irish at heart will be partying hearty and ignoring Kermit the frog’s advice “It’s not easy being green.” On March 17th it is all too easy to be green.

Ireland is renowned as The Emerald Isle because of its spectacular green landscapes. Singer Johnny Cash was so enchanted with the small green island that he penned his famous song Forty Shades of Green on a visit to Ireland decades ago.

But are there really forty shades of green? Gaze upon a few photos I’ve taken around Ireland and make your own decision. Look at my list of 78 shades of green and see if you can come up with even more.
