The Tulla Reaching Out committee as part of the Ireland Reaching Out project have held a Weekend of the Welcomes since 2013. This event has fallen during Heritage Week as we encourage all to participate in the celebration of our local heritage and culture through a variety of events. The Ireland Reaching Out project seeks to re-connect the global diaspora with their ancestral parish. To date, Tulla Reaching Out has welcomed back more than 200 people from all over the world who can trace their ancestry back to the parish of Tulla. All events are free and we welcome all participants. Please join us for any event during the weekend.
