This St Patrick’s Day – Thursday March 17th – and on Sunday 20th March Blue Badge Tourist Guide Tony McDonnell will lead two Emerald City Tours.

The erudite and entertaining Tony can bring Irish history alive conjuring up characters as large as Wolfe Tone, Daniel O’ Connell and W.B. Yeats. Both tours will start at at 2 p.m., from the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral they take about two hours (including a break) and are an easy walk – if you need more information  please phone Tony on 07850 184790.

The £10 charge is terrific value – and you can ask about the 1916 tour he is planning.

Take the first step and discover Irish history in London.
