The Dry Stone Wall Association of Ireland and the Stone Foundation, USA have come together with a vision to invite this international community ‘home’ for a Gathering of Stones in the geographical centre of Ireland.
The Gathering of Stones will be an event where people with an interest in Irish dry stone walls will come together, and under the instruction and guidance of the Dry Stone Wall Association build an attractive communal stone installation that will act as a permanent monument to all events and gatherings that will take place during The Gathering 2013. The monument, a gathering point itself, may also become a place for other gatherings and events for the remainder of the year as well as into the future.
