The Kelly Clan are holding a Gathering at Dundrum House Hotel, Dundrum, Co Tipperary on 17-19 May.
The inaugural meeting of the Clan took place at this venue in 1992 and bi-annual gatherings have been held ever since, making it a 21st birthday celebration!
The weekend is shaping up to be a mammoth event with visitors arriving from all over the globe. The numbers are already far exceeding expectations but thereâ€™s room for more.
Included in the weekendâ€™s programme will be an update on the Kelly DNA Study presented by Australian, Aidan Kelly, the Clanâ€™s Chief Recorder on Genetic Genealogy. On the lighter side will be a costumed re-enactment of a Ned Kelly scene, during a guided tour of the area. There will be a gala dinner on Saturday evening [18th] where friends old and new can meet.
Mary Kelly, one of the organisers and a spokesperson for the Association, says - â€œThe Kelly Clan Gathering in Dundrum House Hotel will have something for everyone, whatever their interest and is a weekend not to be missed. We have had great support from the Gathering Ireland initiative and South Tipperary County Council. We wish all others planning similar events much successâ€
