There is so much going on this year at the Maryland Irish Festival, and as always each day brings something to entertain each member of the family. For example on Friday night we have Scythian taking the stage at 9pm; their unique and vibrant brand of fast paced Celtic music is certainly not to be missed.
On Saturday we have our kids play area, live music and cultural presentations all day, and Jay Linahan, our Vendor Chair reminds us to “take care of all of your Christmas Shopping in one place” by visiting our varied Irish vendors with their spectacular array of Irish Gift ideas.
This year we will also have our inaugural “Kilts and Craic 5K Run”. Sure to be a blast, the run takes place on Sunday, November 10, starting at 8:00am at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium.

The Gathering Ireland 2013 is about the people of Ireland throwing open our arms and inviting anyone with a connection to our country to come and visit.
“In Ireland every place you visit and every person you meet has a story. And they love to tell you their stories. Everyone is interested in everything; in a land of storytellers, you will never be bored” Maeve Binchy, Author
It’s about asking anyone who has Irish blood, a link to Ireland, or even just a love of our country – to join us for a series of amazing and diverse events throughout 2013.
They will range from clan gatherings where people will discover their roots, to rugby clubs inviting foreign teams to their sevens tournament, and groups of international business colleagues conferencing in Ireland.
Those amazing events will be created by you, your neighbour, your work colleague or your sports team.
They will be organised by individuals, groups, business colleagues and clubs within the community who will reach out to their worldwide networks.
For those organising the events, there will be lots of information, help and support available on this website over the coming months.
The Gathering is a powerful grass-roots movement. By reconnecting with our global community, it will be like completing an electrical circuit. Energy will flow and our community will light up and sparkle with its own vitality.
Let’s light up 2013 with an unprecedented celebration of Ireland’s global community, and our past, present and future.
