Two festivals in Mayo that were part of The Gathering 2013 have been shortlisted for this year’s Excellence in Local Government Awards. A new category – The Gathering Ireland 2013 Gathering of the Year – has been added to the awards by the organisers, Chambers Ireland.
In the Community Gathering of the Year, both the Manchester Mayo Gathering, incorporating the Attymass and Mayo North Gathering, and the In Humbert’s Footsteps Gathering have received nominations, which were announced today.
Mayo is the only Irish county to receive two nominations in the category, out of a total of eight nominations nationwide. The award winners will be announced on 13th November, following an adjudication process conducted by a panel of five judges, led by Dónall Curtin, President of Chambers Ireland.
