Calling all Irish! The Gathering Ireland 2013 is a fantastic tourism-led initiative that aims to mobilise the Irish diaspora to return to Ireland during 2013 to be part of specially organised local gatherings and events during the year.
The initiative is supported by the Irish Government but driven primarily by Fáilte Ireland, the National Tourism Development Authority, and Tourism Ireland, however the concept relies on the grassroots activity of private individuals, and non-governmental organisations.
While the initiative is primarily directed at the Irish diaspora, as well as those with a non-ancestral link to the country, the organisers have stated that the overall experience for the general tourist will be enhanced due to the significantly increased number of events planned throughout the year.
Sounds like a great initiative to get involved in. It’s time to put our green thinking caps on, we hope you do to.
Be part of it.
