Global Irish Homecoming Year 2013 - The Gathering

The homecoming year, known as 'The Gathering' is an invitation to those of Irish descent throughout the world to visit the land of their ancestors. After some years of economic strife the 2013 'Gathering' is seen as an opportunity for renewal in Ireland. The event is aimed at being a nationwide time of fun and celebration as well as giving a much needed boost to the economy by the millions in revenue and employment generated.

Although a clear invitation is being given to the Irish diaspora, Tourism Ireland is also keen to extend this to all with an interest in the Country and want to find out more about Ireland. St Patrick’s Day will mark the start of the season’s events.
