Since the launch of 'the Gathering' initiative, the events team at University of Limerick has been working to create an ambitious Limerick Gathering Festival on campus for August 2013 which will offer an exciting event to actively engage with our Diaspora in a 5 day celebration of Irish culture featuring arts, sport and heritage.
The event offers groups, individuals and families the opportunity for a summer holiday celebration at the University's spectacular campus where they can participate in the performing arts play a team sport or just enjoy one of the many classes, workshops and events on offer in language, music, dance and storytelling.
A full children's programme will also be offered. Top Irish artists will line up to entertain while a lively debate and discussion with well known writers, historians and commentators is planned to explore the evolving relationship between the global Diaspora and contemporary Ireland and how Irish culture can have meaning for the Diaspora in the 21st century.
