Tourism Ireland has just launched an inspirational video to remind people of the beauty of Ireland and what people planning a vacation to Ireland can expect when the COVID-19 lockdown is over.
The video includes clips of Irish landscapes that have been untouched and unspoiled during the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.
The video, entitled “I will return“, features spectacular shots of famous Irish landmarks including the Ring of Kerry and the Irish countryside and provides a stirring message that Ireland will get through this current health crisis and once again people will start making trips to Ireland again soon.
The “I will return” video features a specially written poem promising better times ahead and reminding us of the beauty and resilience of Ireland.
“Alas I’ll have to wait to see my true love’s form, but we all know that these green lands have weathered much tougher storms,” the video’s narrator says.
The video promises that Irelands most popular cities, towns and destinations will still be there for self drive tours and various types of vacations when the COVID19 lockdown is over and it encourages people to dream about better times in the future.
Tourism Ireland CEO Niall Gibbons said that the video “allows us to keep the beauty of the island of Ireland to the fore.”
Tourism Ireland has additionally unveiled a new campaign intending to help ensure that the island of Ireland stays “front-of-mind” for those planning a vacation to this magnificent country.
