When the trailer for Wild Mountain Thyme was first released we weren't overly impressed, Emily Blunt and Christopher Walken tried their hand at their best Irish brogue.

And while here in Ireland we felt it was a poor attempt at representing the country, Tourism Ireland is using the film to promote the Emerald Isle and attract tourists here

To talk about the impact of these sorts of tourism campaigns, Anton Savage was joined by Noel Cunningham, Donegal Person of the Year and Ambassador for Harvey’s Point Hotel.
