The Iverk Show Homecoming
The ‘Iverk Show Homecoming’ was officially launched at the show’s AGM last week as a Gathering Ireland 2013 project. The show aims to bring home from abroad family members who left the Barony down through the years.
A great programme of activities is being planned for the show which will be held on the Saturday the 24th August. There will be a meeting point where old friendships can be renewed.
There will be a historical exhibition of features, photographs and memorabilia. If you have anything of interest please contact the committee.
There will be a ‘Generation Game’. We are looking for someone who emigrated up to 50 or more years ago and also the most recent emigrant. We are looking for the largest family group and a four or even five generation family both of which must have at least one returned emigrant.
There will be a section for ‘Made Locally’ businesses, an ‘Iverk’s Got Talent’ competition and a Unique show jumping event. As well as the show we will produce a list of other attractions in the area that you can visit before or after the show.
All members of the committee and the community are encouraged to invite family and friends from abroad to return home for a special show in 2013.
