McCarthy Heritage Weekend in Dunmanway, Ireland 26-28 May, 2017

The weekend has been inspired by the life and work of Daniel MacCarthy Glas (1807, London – 1884, Southampton). The grandson of an emigré from Dunmanway, Daniel devoted many years to research into the genealogy of the MacCarthys in general and his own family in particular, without the benefits of indexed archives, the internet or Y-DNA. Apart from several books, including The Life and Letters of Florence MacCarthy Reagh and A Historical Pedigree of the Sliochd Feidhlimidh. The MacCarthys of Gleannacroim, his research, resulted in an enormous volume of correspondence not just with Irish addresses, but with McCarthys in North America and elsewhere, as Daniel himself lived at various times in England, South Africa, Italy and France. This correspondence was meticulously copied and retained in a family archive which has traveled the globe but, with the generosity of its most recent holder, is now to come to rest in the land of his paternal ancestors.

The weekend is expected to include:

  • An exhibition of a sample of Daniel’s family papers, correspondence and memorabilia, launched (on the Friday evening) with the story of their journey.
  • Talks by representatives of UCC (University College, Cork) School of History.
  • A talk on the latest findings of the McCarthy (Y-DNA) Surname Study (with an opportunity for newcomers to test).
  • A re-dedication of the three plaques to the memory of Daniel’s ancestors at St Patrick’s Church. (Two are seen in the current banner of our main (FTDNA) website).
  • A dinner / dance in celebration of Daniel’s life and work (Saturday evening, the Parkway Hotel).
  • A coach tour (subject to attendance)  of some ancient sites having association with the MacCarthys (Sunday).

The costs have yet to be fully evaluated, but based on the 2013 Gathering will be in the region of 70 Euros for the full weekend, including the Saturday evening dinner and coach tour. We will post further information as it becomes available, but specific inquiries on other than DNA matters should be addressed to Michelle O’Mahony at m.omahonyodriscoll@gmail.com.

Nigel McCarthy, director of the McCarthy Surname Study intends to be in Dunmanway from Thursday 25 to Monday 29 May so should be free to discuss further any aspects of your Y-DNA investigations outside the duration of the above program.

While it may not be quite early enough for this event, those of you crossing the Atlantic in search of your lost relatives should note that the go-ahead for Norwegian Air International (NAI) to pioneer direct ‘no frills’ services from (first) Boston and (later) New York into Cork was given on 2nd December. In the meantime WOW air will be operating services from a number of North American airports into Cork, but with (typically) a two hour stopover in Reykjavik.

 

Irish Kilts and Tartans?

Are there Irish Kilts and Irish Tartans?  After all the Scottish people came to Scotland via Ireland and they descended from the Gaelic people of Ireland.  This article describes the details and dress of the Irish and answers the questions many have concerning them.

MacCarthy Political Legacy Project

In keeping with two of the main objectives of the North American MacCarthy Clan:

  • To foster knowledge of MacCarthy Clan (and, Gaelic-Irish) history, traditions, and customs
  • To promote and preserve awareness of, and provide a place of safekeeping for, artifacts, manuscripts, documents, Internet resources, literature, and/or other items pertaining to the Clan

The following biography project has been initiated to build a library of the political servants of the Clan in North America.

Biographies of MacCarthy Clan politicians from other North American countries are welcome and encouraged.

The following is an extensive list, and a short synopsis, of members of the clan that were active in some way in U.S politics. Your task will be to choose one, two (or however many) and to write a mini-biography on that individual.  Biographies submitted by immediate family members, or descendants, of the politicians in questions will be considered first.  After completion you  may submit the biography for editing before it is posted.  Please submit biographies to: namaccarthyclan@gmail.com

Rules and Objectives:

1. We are trying to create original content biographies.

2. Please – cite all of your sources.

An Open Letter from Noel Griffin

Hello,

My name is Noel Griffin from The Gathering Events Office in Tralee, County Kerry Ireland. I’m reaching out to all McCarthy/Mac Carthy clan members to inform them of the exciting event happening in Ireland this year known as “The Gathering 2013”.

The Gathering 2013 is a year-long celebration of everything that’s unique and great about Ireland and its people. Kerry is celebrating The Gathering with enthusiasm and has over 250 events ranging from activity, arts crafts, cultural, food, music and dance, nature and sports events; clam, family, parish and school reunions as well as a range of local community, nation and international festivals for you to experience and enjoy.

County Kerry has been welcoming visitors for generations, Irish tourism was born in County Kerry and it remains the most popular destination for overseas visitors. In Kerry visitors can celebrate in style while experiencing all the other outdoor amenities that the county has to offer: spectacular tours of Killarney, Dingle and the Ring of Kerry: the rich Christian heritage of Skellig Michael, Dingle Peninsula and North Kerry. World class golf on parkland and links courses, outdoor activities, horse racing, angling and water sports: the best of traditional Irish culture, music and dance, crafts and traditions: superb accommodation and conference facilities, and food and evening entertainment in our towns and villages.
