'Gathering' talks set up

TOURISM bosses are to hold a series of Town Hall-style meetings to promote The Gathering 2012.

Local 'Gathering' organisations comprising of sporting bodies, cultural and musical groups, local authorities and development committees, are to be set up in every county.

Minister of State Michael Ring said: "The Gathering 2012 is a people's project. It's extremely important that this initiative is not confined to big cities, but will be a truly countrywide event which shows off Ireland at its best."
