Skies turn green for Paddy's Day 18.03.13

AS the world turned emerald for St Patrick's Day, even Mother Nature honoured the Irish patron saint with a spectacular display of green in the Donegal skies.
Local photographer, Brendan Diver, captured the unique Northern Lights phenomenon from the beach at Ballyliffin last night as revellers celebrated the annual feast day around the country.

Weather conditions were forecast to be perfect on the evening of March 17 for a display of the lights – also known as the Aurora Borealis. And they didn’t disappoint, said Brendan.
"An amazing natural show lit the Donegal skies green on Saint Patrick’s night with the Northern Lights.
"Cities around the world colour their drink, rivers and buildings green, but here in Donegal, we light up our skies instead," said Brendan.
