WATCH: Pulsating promo shows off Ireland’s sporting glory

Fáilte Ireland have outdone themselves with their latest promo clip - if we didn’t live here already we’d be jumping straight on the nearest plane.

Promoting us an event island, the video focuses on the massive sporting culture in the country.

Our thriving music and festival scene also gets a nod, but this is all about blood, sweat and tears - and Ireland’s devotion to its sporting heroes.

From GAA to rugby, Katie Taylor to Padraig Harrington, sailing to racing and all points in between, they make the place look flipping marvellous.

Check it out, but be warned - you will want to go straight to the nearest stadium to start cheering someone on.
