2013-05-25: "THE GATHERING" - what are we doing in Inniscarra?
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

The Gathering is the title of a government initiative to encourage emigrants
– or the descendants of emigrants - to return to where they or their ancestors
grew up and participate in assorted 'Welcome Home' events & activities. 
Ideally, the visitors might also spend, spend, spend!  Admittedly, its probably
a bit over-optimistic to hope that The Gathering will lift the country out of the
financial mire in which we are trapped – but at least it offers the possibility
that we might all have a bit of craic making the effort.  Definitely though,
it is something that could provide great long-term spin-offs.
Read more at http://www.TheGatheringIreland.com/
At time of writing, there are over 230 groups / parishes / organisations
throughout Cork County alone that have registered to participate in The Gathering 2013.
In October 2012, Inniscarra Community Centre formed a sub-committee
to come up with ideas on how we could participate.  A new website was created
by December – www.Inniscarra.Org – plus ‘presences’ were set up on both
Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/inniscarra.gathering) and
Twitter (https://twitter.com/ScarraGathering/)
You can read more about it all at http://www.Inniscarra.Org/styled-2/
