Gathering News!

2022 Gathering

Killarney,  Ireland


Information  is now available in the Gathering tab.


Welcome to the Curtin Clan! 


Many of us enjoyed sitting around the table listening to stories from our grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents and cousins.  Many of those voices are now silent, yet our yearning to connect with the generations before us is still strong.  The Curtin Clan offers the opportunity to connect with stories that help us better understand our history.  

An important benefit of joining the Clan is connecting with Margaret Curtain, our genealogist. She has collected a wealth of information from buying up thousands of documents for Curtin families worldwide since 1977. She is a founding member of the Clan, and was presented the insignia appointing her as a Companion of the Order of Clans of Ireland (CIOM) by the Irish vice counsel at the Chicago Gathering in June 2011. 


Another benefit is connecting with our DNA project coordinator, Dan Curtin. We have a number of Curtins who have participated and this will help expand your genealogy research.  We have quarterly newsletters and will have our next gathering in Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland in 2021.


Sláinte chuig na fir, agus go mairfidh na mná go deo! 

(Health to the men and may the women live forever!)
