The Gathering 2013
Amongst the Limerick events already proposed include an international 'limericks' festival, a world clay pigeon shoot, a Limerick Choral Festival, a walking tour of Limerick to incorporate culture, food, history and music, a Fleadh Gathering in Castletroy, a Fitzgerald clan gathering in Adare and an international harp festival in our home village of Castleconnell as well as a number of parish reunions.
The Gathering is gaining momentum with a number of well-known Irish personalities pledging their support, including Munster and Irish rugby star Paul O’Connell, and actors Pierce Brosnan and Liam Neeson.
John Enright Gathering in Castleconnell
John Enright was an iconic flycasting world champion from Castleconnell in 1890 - our festival will commemorate this.
