An idea that emerged from the Global Irish Economic Forum at Farmleigh House in Dublin in 2009 was The Gathering: an initiative to invite people home. At its heart is a simple concept: the chance for people to re-connect. To help celebrate ‘The Gathering’, the Irish Independent will publish a 32 page glossy magazine packed with everything you need to know about this celebration; what is ‘The Gathering’? What kind of events are planned? Including advice on how to organise your own gathering event.
