One million Italians meet 'Leprechaun Whisperer'

Images of Ireland were beamed into the homes of around one million people across Italy  when a special Ireland episode of a popular TV show will air during prime time on Italia italtv1, a major national Italian TV channel.
 
Roberto Giacobbo, the presenter of a documentary series called Freedom: Oltre il Confine (meaning ‘Freedom: Beyond the Border’), visited Ireland last year. Filming was supported by Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.

In the 25-minute episode, Italian viewers will see Roberto visit Trinity College in Dublin, as well the Leprechaun and Fairy Cavern in Carlingford, where he meets with ‘leprechaun whisperer’ Kevin Woods. The episode is the first of four dedicated to Ireland, which will highlight our rich heritage and culture. The TV programme is regularly seen by around one million viewers, with millions more watching on catch-up TV and on social media.
 
Ornella Gamacchio, Tourism Ireland’s Manager Italy, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted that Freedom: Oltre il Confine chose to film in Ireland last year. This evening’s episode – which will be seen by around 1 million Italians – is a fun way of shining a spotlight on Ireland, reminding viewers of our many wonderful experiences and attractions. It will help ensure that Ireland stays front-of-mind with prospective Italian travellers, until such time as they can visit again.”
