The Gathering Ireland 2013 - Be Part of It! 2013 promises to be an incredible year in Ireland. It is the year of The Gathering Ireland which means that throughout 2013 the Irish will throw open their arms, inviting friends and family from around the world to come to Ireland to celebrate.

To celebrate what? To celebrate that enchanting country’s music, culture, sports, food, fun…the list goes on and on. What it really means is to celebrate life in a way only the Irish know how.
