Clann Gathering 12-18 June 2023, Athlone Ireland


Dear friends, A chaire,

In a world of everchanging landscapes- both political and environmental- it would be hard to overstate the importance of family. Sadly our global clan lost family this year and to those families we extend our deepest sympathy on their loss. The circle of life has (happily) provided us the joy of many new clan children and grandchildren- congratulations to them! The energy of the warmth and camaraderie at the Clan meeting in Brisbane enforced the importance of friendships and more pointedly, the importance of our Egan Clan. Thanks again to Greg and Sue for such a successful meeting!


Despite many global uncertainties, especially the worrying situation in Ukraine, we remember to continue to hold close those near to us. We reflect on 2022 opportunities (seized and missed), our learnings, those we love, and the journey we enjoy together. I wish for us all that this end of year is a time for celebration and optimism for 2023.

I am delighted to confirm that the Clan Rally 2023 will take place in Ireland from 12-17th June 2023 in the Sheraton Hotel in Athlone. Athlone is geographically located right in the heart of Ireland and sits on the river Shannon on the banks of one of the largest lakes in Ireland. It is a truly beautiful part of Ireland! We are working on a full program of visits each day to a variety of sites and ancient monuments linked to our Egan history. As always, it will be interactive and inclusive and we welcome anyone with any level of interest or curiosity and knowledge. Children of all ages are welcome – there is plenty to do!


Anyone wishing to reserve in the hotel should do so directly with them– there is no reservation code so please inform customer service that you are with Clan Egan – they await our calls.
For now I sign off by wishing you and your families happy holidays and continuing good health. I hope to see you in Ireland for Guinness, fun, music and stories.


Laethanta Saoire Nollag sona daoibh féin agus do do theaghlaigh go leir.
