Cheers to the Irish, Near and Far!

Cities, villages, economic development agencies and businesses large and small in Ireland are in the midst of a year-long initiative called “The Gathering” that is sure to help augment the country’s economic recovery and omahony-coat-of-arms-family-crest2.giftourism revenue for this year and beyond.

Essentially, the public relations campaign is an invitation for descendants, family and friends to visit the “home turf” throughout 2013 and participate in special events.

I saw the Saint Patrick’s Day parade in Dublin in 2011, though June through August is generally the best time of year to spend a vacation on the Emerald Isle, as the weather is generally ideal and you can bask in long summer nights of daylight with the high latitude.

Slainte and Erin Go Bragh!
