The group wants to monitor the success of this year’s festival by tracking all news and social media mentions around the celebration. With St. Patrick's celebrations happening around the world - the group wants to ensure they only see mentions specific to the St. Patrick’s Festival in Dublin, Ireland. 


This year’s festival includes the world-famous St. Patrick's Day Parade, in addition to events at Festival Quarter at the iconic National Museum of Ireland Collins Barracks, including the best in music, dance, circus, conversation, spectacle, food and drink and so much more.

  (((St OR Saint) ONEAR (Paddy OR Patrick)) AND (Day OR Festival OR Celebrat* OR Parade OR Feast))
  (hashtag:stpatricksday OR hashtag:StPats)
  ("Festival Quarter" NEAR/10 “Collins Barracks”)
(infoType:“news” OR infoType:“social”)
(country:"IE" OR Dublin OR Ireland)

Also put two notes here:

  1. Using eventcompany:"St. Patrick's Festival Group" does not work, maybe media/social media tends not to label company’s full name.
  2. Doubt if I should use "Festival Quarter" as it is not helpful as well.

Congratulations @Jose Guerra Mora , you’re the office hero!  Check your PMs for a message from me regarding details. 


Thank you to all who entered! To continue in the fun check out the April Competition (with new prizes) - you don’t want to miss it 😎


Check out a recommended Boolean string below: 

((infoType:“news” OR infoType:“social”) AND (“St. Patrick’s Day” OR "Saint Patrick's Day" OR “St. Patrick’s celebrat*” OR "Saint Patrick's celebrat*" OR “St. Patricks Parade” OR "Saint Patricks Parade" OR "St. Paddy's Day" OR "Saint Paddy's Day") AND (“Dublin, Ireland” OR (“Dublin” NEAR/5 “Ireland” OR "Festival Quarter") OR “National Museum of Ireland Collins Barracks”))


When the boolean is in action you can see the results are relevant and notice the spike during the days of the festival. 


Of course there is no one right answer - I loved seeing how each of you created your boolean strings :)
