As the world gears up for another St Patrick's day strewn with shamrocks and Guinness, cheap international call provider Firstnumber has decided to celebrate the luck of the Irish with cheap calls to Ireland.

In fact, as St Patrick's day celebrations get into full swing in countries like Canada, the USA, Argentina and New Zealand, UK residents can enjoy cheap calls to Ireland for just 1p a minute from a standard BT landline when combined with Firstnumber's discount access code. – whose slogan is 'where cheap calls cost pennies' – offers discounted dialling on calls to both landlines and mobiles, meaning added flexibility for consumers looking to wish a happy St Patrick's day to friends and family living in Ireland.

Company spokesperson Andy Steele hopes Firstnumber's St Patrick's day number will help bring people together this March 17th:

“St Patrick's day is a special celebration for many people right across the globe but the religious and cultural epicentre has to be in Ireland itself.

“At Firstnumber we're proud to offer cheap calls to Ireland so people can easily connect with family and friends on the 'Emerald Isle' even if they can't be there to join in the fun in person.

“For example, callers dialling Ireland for a thirty minute catch up could stand to save around £5.00 in comparison to what you might expect to pay from a standard BT landline, without the discount applied.

“Leaving just enough change to buy yourself a pint of Guinness!”

Direct dial access codes work by placing a designated code in front of the number you wish to call.

The code then applies a discounted rate allowing users to call over 250+ destinations such as Spain from as little as 1p a minute.
