The Gathering: will you ‘be part of it’?

More than 1,600 events have already been organised around the country, and we want to know if you’ll be taking part. Will you be travelling back to Ireland in 2013? Will it be to attend an event for The Gathering? If not, why not? Are you organising an event in your area? Tell us about it.

The Gathering 2013 initiative to “reach out to those who have moved away, their relatives, friends and descendants, and invite them home” to Ireland for the “people’s party” kicked off on New Year’s Eve. Read Ronan McGreevy’s article in today’s Irish Times here.

More than 2,500 events have already been organised around the country, and we want to know if you’ll be taking part.

Will you be travelling back to Ireland in 2013? Will it be to attend an event for The Gathering? If not, why not? Do you think the event is relevant to recent emigrants?

If you’re organising an event in your area, we’d like to hear about it too.
