WATCH: "Mise Eire / I Am Ireland" video shows the global pride behind being Irish

The clip is to raise awareness of the 1916 centenary programme

With the entire country gearing up for the 100 year anniversary of 1916, the people at Ireland 2016 have released a video showcasing what it means to be Irish in the 21st century.

Ireland in 2016 is a celebration intended to belong to everyone on the island of Ireland as well as those who are overseas – regardless of political or family background, or personal interpretation of modern history.

The Centenary will be a formal State celebration to mark the events and the people whose beliefs and actions made it possible to evolve to the Ireland we see today.

The video shows people of all ages and from all over the world, speaking about what it is that makes them happy to be Irish.

Ireland 2016 plan to have a full programme of events to help celebrate the Centenary, and the full details of that programme can be found on their official website here.
