The Gallaher International Summer School is a five-day sports festival inspired by, and named after Dave Gallaher, the founding father of New Zeland All Blacks rugby, who was born in Ramelton, Co. Donegal in 1873. This is the first Irish Summer School solely dedicated to sport - all sports.

The Summer School is a mix of conference-style debate forums involving national and international speakers, sporting competitions, coaching and demonstration sports.

The setting for this sportsfest is the picturesque heritage town of Ramelton in County Donegal.

There will also be a full programme of cultural, artistic and musical entertainment - with a sporting theme.
