‘Rathowen Gathering’ has officially invited American rock legend Bruce Springsteen - whose great-great grandmother was born and raised in the village - to its special Gathering event over the bank holiday weekend in August.
Hopes are high that committee members will be in a position to present the Boss with his great-great grandmother’s birth certificate at the Rathowen Community Hall - the very grounds where she attended school as a child. There is great excitment in the area as the event draws nearer, so let’s hope the man himself can make it on the day!
