Some exciting events are just around the corner, so take note! Love trees? Interested in Wicklow genealogy? Two great events are coming up in May. You have a bit more time to get organized if you are a Brosnan from County Kerry – your Gathering isn’t until July!

I know we included it last time, but make sure you check out the video near the end of the post. This video just makes us smile!

In case you haven’t heard, 2013 is the year of The Gathering in Ireland. Hundreds of reunions, festivals, and celebrations are on the books, and more are planned every day. From time to time, I will turn the spotlight on Gathering attempting to trace and invite American relatives. And sometimes I will feature Gatherings that just look like a good time! Email me if you would like to have your gathering featured on The Irish in America.
