To celebrate the Gathering 2013, all past Pride of Tipperary winners and contestants are invited back to Tipperary for a once off Gathering of the Prides on June 27 at the Tipperary Racecourse.

The Gathering evening will coincide with the launch of the 2013 Pride of Tipperary Festival that includes fundraising events such as a table quiz, fashion show, gala dinner and the Tipperary festival finale.

Pride of Tipperary Chairperson Laura Moore would like to call on anybody who might know or be related to a past Pride of Tipperary contestant to get in touch with the Tipperary Chamber of Commerce so that they can be invited to the Gathering event.

A list of the 48 Pride of Tipperary winners is available from the Tipperary Chamber of Commerce. Check out the Facebook page: Past Pride of Tipperary Gallery.

The Pride festival has a strong fundraising legacy and last year presented a cheque for €5,000 to the Tipperary Lions Club. The Lions Club will once again be the fundraising partner for the 2013 Festival.
