The other day I wrote to Templemore to ask whether anyone was planning any function in 2013 for “The Gathering 2013” ? See http://www.thegatheringireland.com/About.aspx. I received the following splendid reply:

Good morning Arthur, I had the pleasure of meeting your group when you visited the Town Hall - 19th September - during your trip [in 2008]. Hard to believe that is over 4 years ago now. How time is flying by.
For the “2013 Gathering” the Council has set up a Committee to develop a programme of events. Whether this will be an intensive set of events over a short period of say a week or a series of events throughout the year I am not sure at this time. I will add your contact details to the list for circulation in due course.
Looking forward to seeing you in 2013. Regards to all your family.
Tom Mc Grath, Town Clerk, Templemore Town Council.
I will keep all the "Irish" members of our family informed about this, and all being well, I will organise a trip to Tipperary in the coming year.
Incidentally, we have "downsized" to a flat/apartment and our address is now. : 14 Lyon Court, Ayshe Court Drive, Horsham RH13 5RN. New telephone 01403 276750. Email remains firstname.lastname@example.org.
