Tourism Minister Catherine Martin is planning a 'Gathering Part 2' to attract overseas visitors..
Leo Varadkar , then Minister for Tourism, is pictured promoting the 2013 event.
Ms Martin said discussions around an event on the scale of the 2013 tourism-led initiative are under way, but she cannot say if a second Gathering will go ahead next year.
"We haven't made a decision, we're engaging with the industry on what year would be best," she said.
"It's not just about the tourists coming in but it's everything that comes with a year like that. We want to tap into everything to make it successful and that's why the engagement with with the industry is key."
The original Gathering provided a €170m economic boost and kicked off a seven-year expansion of the tourism sector.
Ms Martin said she hoped to announce details of another similar event when the Dáil returns in the autumn.
She said the number of inbound travellers, while up in recent weeks, is still 90% down on pre-Covid figures.
"That US market and the UK market are really significant, what we have said in the national economic recovery plan is we will keep the supports in place," she said, referring to current pandemic supports.
