The Gathering has begun. People are travelling, preparing, building the village in the glen of Rockahock that comes and goes like Brigadoon once a year. This year is a delightful combination of Children's Joy, Celtic Pride, and Recognition of the service of the Diaspora! Come along and enjoy the Celtic culture whether you are Celtic or Celtic Curious. A big thank you to the very small and very mighty group of volunteers who plan and implement this festival.
