The Gathering - Irish Day of Action for Rockaways set to give a new meaning to Thanksgiving

A major Irish “Day of Action” to help the residents of Rockaway who have been shattered by Hurricane Sandy has been decided upon by the Irish community in conjunction with the Irish government.

“There’s a huge need to find licensed electricians. If someone has plumbing or construction skills, or are willing to take on a role as a project manager that’s what we’re hoping to assign.”

Dennehy added that it’s a volunteer effort for a very god cause. “We’re looking for people to show up on Saturday and help out in whatever way they can,” she said.
