Emly Gathering

Throughout 2013, Ireland will open its arms to hundreds of thousands of friends and family from all over the world, calling them home to gatherings in villages, towns and cities.

Communities throughout Ireland will showcase and share the very best of Irish culture, tradition, business, sport, fighting spirit and the uniquely Irish sense of fun.



The Community of Emly Invites Our People from Thursday 18th July to Sunday 22nd July 2013 to:

Make a Visit Home: We would like to welcome home our emigrants and the families of our people who emigrated over the generations.




Trace Your Roots : Use your visit as an opportunity to get to know the people place and background of your people. 





Explore our Historic Past: Emly has a proud and ancient history. It also had the sad experience of famine and emigration.





Visit Our Award Winning Village: In recent years Emly has been a frequent winner of Regional, National and International Environmental, Tidy Town and Community Awards. In the words of one adjudicator- “Emly is worth a visit.”




We look forward to welcoming our visitors to Emly. A full programme of events will be posted at a later date. Information re accommodation will also be given.
