The Gathering is a people’s project. It’s all about you, your family, your neighbours, your sports club, your college – in fact, whatever community or group you belong to – planning special events that will highlight what is great about that community and Ireland as a whole.
Irish individuals and community groups – both at home and abroad – are at the heart of the GatheringWe hope you’ll reach out to your international networks, far-flung groups of friends and colleagues, or even people you’re connected to but haven’t met yet, and invite them to Ireland for a fun-filled year of celebration.
The Gathering has many stakeholders, partners and supporters, including Government departments, State bodies, local authorities, local development companies, private businesses, the global Irish community and the tourism industry. The initiative is also fully supported by Fáilte Ireland and Tourism Ireland. But Irish individuals and community groups – both at home and abroad – are at the heart of the Gathering.
