Green was definitely the colour of choice as Jameson hosted its popular St. Patrick’s Day Global Party in the Mansion House. International legends Groove Armada headlined the Dublin event along with support from Republic of Loose, Codes, DJ Aidan Kelly and MC for the night Michelle Doherty.

Guests were also treated to a Jameson drinks reception while enjoying live link ups to other Global Parties taking place in Cape Town and Sofia to ensure a truly global experience was had by all.

This year Jameson broadcast their own global internet radio station, Jameson FM, to the 70 million members of the Irish community listening abroad. Celebrity hosts for the day included Craig Doyle, Sile Seoige, Ray Shah and Neil Delamare, who provided the ultimate St. Patrick’s Day party soundtrack.

During the day over 35 radio stations from around the globe descended on the Old Jameson Distillery in Dublin as part of the Jameson Global Radio Broadcast. They transmitted their Paddy’s Day shows from the heart of the celebrations to over 50,000,000 listeners who joined in on the festivities.
