Drones light up Dublin on St Patrick's Day

The ultra lightweight 340-gram (3/4 pound), purpose-built drones weaved into different shapes and alternated colours as part of a show entitled "Orchestra of Light."

Organized by Tourism Ireland, Dublin City Council and the St Patrick's Festival, the show incorporated drone animations by festival designer Aiden Grennelle.

While normal St Patrick's Day celebrations will be muted due to the coronavirus pandemic, 670 landmarks in 66 countries across the world will still light up green to celebrate the influence of Irish culture.
