Fellow members of the McGrath Clan
It’s that time of year when we look back on the previous 12 months and look forward to a New Year. It’s a time of goodwill and a season where we share precious time with our family and friends. Across the many years and miles that separate us, our common Irish heritage brings us closer together.
As we reflect back, I would like to praise and thank each and everyone who helped promote our clan in any way. The flag for the 2019 McGrath Clan Gathering has been in North America, New Zealand, and Australia this year and is currently in South Africa. Each of the hosts has to be commended for their help.
Looking forward, we have an important event in 2019 and I, as Chieftain of the Clan McGrath (Thomond) and Chairman of the McGrath Clan Association/Cumman Clann Mhic Craith, hope to welcome many of you to the International McGrath Clan Gathering in the beautiful coastal town of Dungarvan on Ireland’s south-east coast. It will truly be a special event for all the McGrath Clan.
We also need to remember those who are no longer with us. They may be gone but they are not forgotten and are still very much in our thoughts.
I want to wish each and every one of you, wherever you may be, a very happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
Nollaig Shona agus Athbhliain faoi Mhaise Duit.
