The Gathering 2013
So - have you heard about The Gathering!!??
Here's why 2013 is the year for all us to Gather our friends, family, colleagues and team meets to meet in Ireland and celebrate all the great things Ireland has acheived and what it truely means to be Irish!
Ireland despite being a small island lying on the precipices of western Europe has made an indelible and indeed overwhelming impact on the world in terms of history, politics, the sciences, sport, music and literature, and with over 70 million people claiming an Irish heritage worldwide, our diaspora may found in the four corners of the world - an incredible feat for an island on the peripheries of Europe.
With this is mind, a tourism based initiative was launched on St. Patrick’s Day 2012 to encourage people whether Irish born, with an Irish heritage / link or just indeed with an affinity with Ireland to “Gather” in the Emerald Isle. The Gathering will focus on Ireland’s heritage and culture and hopes to bring people together whether through clan gatherings/genealogical research, sports meetings, festivals and even conferencing. It is a celebration of Ireland - a mixing of her old and new and presenting Ireland to the world stage as not just a picture postcard destination but a country of multifaceted talents and a country embracing the advancement of the 21st century while remembering the achievements of the past.
Sample our delights first hand and experience the real Ireland in 2013 – to behold not only the breath-taking scenery – a summer’s day on Inch Strand or your first sight of the awe-inspiring Cliffs of Moher, but also the intangible delights this country has to offer – the thump of a brodhan during an impromptu music session, the cheer of a GAA match at Croke Park or the smells of Guinness along the Liffey’s quays on a crisp winter’s morning.
So make 2013 the year that you “Gather” your friends, colleagues or team members and come to Ireland and enjoy all we have to offer – the people, the sights and the infamous “craic”.
