‘Gathering’ funding approved for our exchange with Samba Résille


We learned late last week that we have been given a grant of €500 as part of the ‘Gathering’, which is a government initiative to promote tourism into Ireland in 2013.

30 members of Samba Résille (Toulouse) will be travelling to Ireland and working with us in late June, and while €500 is only a tiny fraction of the overall budget necessary, it does allow us to start with some of the administrative work, such as booking accommodation, a performance, venue, etc.

There will be a lot of developments with this project over the next few weeks – watch this space!
