1 Mins read

Following an agreement by MLAs, Stormont will be illuminated by coloured lights to mark four annual events.

The illuminations will begin in 3 days time when “The House on The Hill” is turned purple to mark International Women’s Day. Following this, Stormont will be turned green to mark St Patrick’s Day, orange to mark the 12th of July and red to mark Remembrance Day.

The decision came about after a discussion was held by MLAs, as a number of world landmarks already use green illuminations to mark St Patrick’s Day. These include; The Pyramids, The London Eye, The Leaning Tower of Pisa, The White House and Belfast City Hall.
