Bratacha (The Gathering)
Festival of Flags and Emblems – Dún Laoghaire, May 9th – 11th 2013
A novel and exciting event to be held in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown as part of The Gathering Ireland 2013 nationwide festival, Bratacha 2013 is an international symposium on the history, heritage, culture and identities associated with flags and emblems – in essence, it is a ‘Festival of Flags & Emblems’.
Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company, National Maritime Museum of Ireland and the Genealogical Society of Ireland are the ‘lead organisations’ engaged in the planning for this important and unique event. As this type of event is a first for Ireland, it is ideally suited to showcase and to explore, in particular, the maritime heritage of our wonderful Town and magnificent Harbour in Dún Laoghaire.
