The Embassy of Ireland in South Africa collaborated with the Long March to Freedom to bring the St Patrick’s Day Global Greening initiative to Cape Town on 17 March.

“The Embassy is proud to mark our national day in this very special manner, by illuminating in green the heroes of the South African struggle whose courage and sacrifice inspired a generation of Irish people to stand with South Africa in its struggle for a democratic and just future,” says Ambassador of Ireland to South Africa, Fionnuala Gilsenan.

“By collaborating with The Long March to Freedom and the Embassy of Ireland through this creative initiative, we’re encouraged that a spotlight – figuratively and literally in this instance – is cast upon the cultural abundance we’re creating in Century City. We’re delighted that our spot in Cape Town is receiving international exposure in this instance. May this be the first of many collaborations, says John Chapman, Chairman of the Century City Arts Foundation.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Embassy of Ireland for this significant event’, says Dali Tambo, CEO of the National Heritage Project Company, owners of Long March to Freedom.
