The Big Hello! National Community Weekend 2019

To Everyone, For Everyone

 The Big Hello!  National Community Weekend 2019

The Big Hello!, Ireland’s National Community Weekend, was launched by the Minister for Rural and Community Development Michael Ring T.D.


The Big Hello! is going to be a weekend of community celebration. The aim of the weekend is to encourage people to get to know their neighbours, by hosting or attending a Big Hello! event in their local area.

This can be done together in many ways. Come together to:

  • Eat
  • Dance
  • Stand
  • Sit
  • Walk
  • Chat
  • Sing
  • Jog

But how your community does it is up to you! This is your celebration, To Everybody, For Everybody!


The Big Hello!, National Community Weekend 2019, is happening on the May bank holiday weekend, 4-6 May.


Events will take place in communities in every county. It will see neighbours reconnect within their communities and have a celebration together which is open and inclusive for all at a very local level.


Funding and information packs are available from your Local Authority, for those who wish to host a Big Hello! event.
