This song is about pride – pride in our people and pride in our country. This song reminds us that despite our present challenges we will come through, stronger than before. Like the river that keeps on flowing, Ireland keeps on going and this spirit is what defines us as a nation.
2013, the year of our Gathering, is a great year to be part of that journey. 'Our river keeps on flowing' reminds us of what is great about our country. It will hopefully encourage more and more people, to find out more about Ireland and spend some time here this year.

The Gathering will be a year long celebration of all that is great about Ireland. Throughout 2013, the people of Ireland are reaching out to our many friends, family and loved ones across the world, inviting them to celebrate with us.
It promises to be an iconic and memorable year, a time Ireland can be proud of in years to come. Thousands of Gatherings, big and small, are planned throughout the year in every part of Ireland.
Come join us…
