The Gathering Ireland 2013, Be part of it.

I would like to thank the gathering for supporting my Summit Bid of Mt Everest in a very special year of being proud to be Irish….My commitment to the gathering is to bring the Donegal flag PROUDLY to the summit of the highest place on earth Mt Everest & it home again.

Throughout 2013, Ireland is opening its arms to hundreds of thousands of friends and family from all over the world, calling them home to gatherings in villages, towns and cities.

 There are clan gatherings, festivals, special sporting events, music and concerts taking place all across the country, all year long.

Communities throughout Ireland are showcasing and sharing the very best of Irish culture, tradition, business, sport, fighting spirit and the uniquely Irish sense of fun.

Over 70 million people worldwide claim Irish ancestry. The Gathering Ireland 2013 provides the perfect excuse to reach out to those who have moved away, their relatives, friends and descendants, and invite them home.

So now it is over to you. It is in your hands. Be part of it.
