Brosnan Clan Gathering 2013

Are you a Brosnan or is there a Brosnan branch on your family tree?

Brosnans from all over the world are set to converge on Castleisland and its surrounding villages from July 25th to 28th 2013 for the  Brosnan Clan Gathering, as part of the East Kerry Roots Festival 2013. The Brosnan name has been one of the most prominent in East Kerry for centuries, with its origins believed to be linked to the Brosna area.

An invitation is being extended to all Brosnan clan members locally, nationally and internationally to join this ancient clan and celebrate their proud heritage. This four-day gathering gives Brosnans from around the world, and anyone with Brosnan ancestry, the chance to rediscover their roots. The proceedings will culminate in the inauguration of a new Brosnan clan chieftain.

The Gathering will provide an opportunity to socialize, chat with relatives and re-live past times through attending the variety of cultural and heritage events, walks and workshops on offer.

We know that you will enjoy your visit to the Sliabh Luachra area. For some this will be an opportunity to visit the place of their birth, for others, the birth place of their ancestors. For all, it will be an occasion to relive and create fond memories over a joyous weekend.
