The Gathering Ireland 2013 – What is it?
The Gathering is aimed at inviting new or reconnecting with people abroad who have Irish ancestry which is said to be over 70 million people worldwide to showcase all the amazing things Ireland has to offer from old traditions to newer ones. There are numerous Gatherings already organised and a quick visit to www.thegatheringireland.com will tell you all you need to know. You may even decide on joining in on one, they vary from Family Reunions, Clan Gatherings to Sports Fixtures.
The Gathering is not one simple party or festival it is a year-long celebration of all things Irish and reconnecting with communities abroad and at home. The idea of The Gathering emerged in 2009 and is being successfully championed by the Irish Government, Failte Ireland www.failteireland.ie and Tourism Ireland to name but a few.
