Community Tourism Diaspora Project

This initiative is a three-way partnership between Fáilte Ireland, IPB Insurance and Leitrim County Council and has been established as a follow on from the success of the Gathering in mobilising local communities to harness diaspora links for the benefit of local tourism. The objectives of the initiative are to:


  • Provide support in the form of small-scale funding incentives for community-based tourism events that have the capacity to carry through the legacy of The Gathering in 2014 and beyond;
  • Create a national network of local events with the capacity to deepen diaspora linkages and networks that have been developed or re-activated during The Gathering year;
  • To foster the growth of strong county diaspora networks on the basis that diaspora relationships are rooted in 'people and place'.
