 The Gathering Clare Festivals & Events 

Many committee members of the Clare Association Dublin were in Ennis for The Gathering Festivals & Events Expo that was held in Glór on Sunday 27th January 2013.  Over 100 Clare festival events planned for 2013 were showcased. The event was very well organised and entertainment was provided to the large attendance.
