Gathering of Green Eyes


The 2021 Koroit Irish Festival marked the staging of a very special event, the inaugural “A Gathering of Green Eyes”.

The event was a celebration of this wonderful Irish trait and brought those blessed with this special feature out in big numbers.

The winner was Dusty Drake from Wangoom, while we would also like to thank our inaugural Gathering of Green Eyes ambassador Laureen Manning.

It was great fun and it’s on again in 2022.

All you need to do is look for the A Gathering of Green Eyes sign where everyone is assembled for the Street Procession at 11.45am on Saturday April 30 and follow the crowd.
