Darragh Doyle tweetz:

A lot of novelty green plastic will be bought this St Patrick’s Day. A lot will be wasted. It doesn’t have to end up in landfill. @EPICMuseumCHQ will swap the novelty plastic for tickets to the Museum. It will then be donated to Social Enterprise @ReCreateIreland for reuse.

In fairness.

At this Sunday’s St. Patrick’s Day parade in London, the Votes for Irish Citizens Abroad  (VICA) campaign will be marching to celebrate the contribution of Irish emigrants and to call for a Yes vote in this year’s referendum on Presidential voting rights.

We believe that each citizen deserves a vote, and Ireland should move in line with 34 other European countries by extending the franchise.

VICA’s focus this year is on campaigning for a YES vote in the Autumn referendum to extend Presidential voting rights to Irish citizens abroad – in other words, a #voteforthevote.
