Two times Oscar winning actor, (and possibly the first male to win a third for best actor for his performance as Lincoln) Daniel day Lewis has come out and lent his unequivocal support to the Gathering.
On Sunday, Day Lewis will bring an array of Hollywood stars to Ireland in an event that is being supported by The Gathering Ireland 2013. Among those present will include the Hollywood director Steven Spielberg. Proceeds from this worthy event will go to the Wicklow Hospice Foundation.
Day Lewis had the following to say about the Gathering;
"I would like to offer my support and encouragement for the Gathering this year. What better moment than this, for all those with Irish roots and connections throughout the world, to visit and revisit Ireland. By answering that whisper in the blood and returning to the source, they shall also be investing in the future of this uniquely magnificent country”.

A positive development indeed and which sets The Gathering Ireland 2013 off to a good start. Daniel Day Lewis's comments and indeed his actions will also bring more international attention to the 2013 Irish Gathering.
All in all which can only be a good thing for this country! Well done, Daniel.
Ps – Don’t tell Gabriel of this latest development, the poor man will have a hernia!
