The Gathering 2013 – Cork Needs YOU!!!

September 11, 2012 » In: Latest News » Leave a comment

To all Corkonians


I wish to advise you of the largest community-led tourism initiative this country has ever seen and we need your help!

The Gathering Ireland 2013 responds to the challenge of getting Ireland growing again.  It is an opportunity for those at home and abroad to get involved in a national movement to reconnect with the Irish Diaspora and to increase economic development.

 The Gathering Ireland 2013 is a people’s project. It’s about you, your family, your neighbours, your community, your sports club, your town and county. This is your chance to showcase the every best of Ireland by organising a special event and inviting home those with Irish connections to be part of it.

 The goal is to create a calendar of local events in Cork around The Gathering Ireland 2013 and to have these advertised on the purpose-built national website.

We are trying to reach as many people in the Community as is possible to invite them to come to Community Meetings where information on The Gathering will be provided. These meetings provide a forum where groups and individuals can put forward ideas for Cork Gathering events in 2013.


Please notify your members of these meetings (details shown below) so they have an opportunity to get involved!
