The objective is to gather the most amount of people with the first name or surname Clare/Claire or Clair in County Clare on the 23rd June 2013.

You dont have to be from County Clare, you may not have even heard of County Clare, but you will share a name that is synonymous with being 'clear, bright and famous' and you be welcomed by Clare Ambassadors who will ensure you get to sample the very best that County Clare has to offer.

The event will form part of a weekend of welcomes, which will feature free music event on the Friday 21st June in Ennis as part of the Love Live Music event, street entertainment on the Saturday 22nd June and a special edition Welcome to Clare card which will offer special offers and discounts to various attractions countywide for the weekend.

Volunteers will be on hand on the streets of Ennis as Clare Ambassadors to give out information and guidance to visitors and the festival promises to be a weekend filled with welcomes which will inspire people to return to County Clare.
