Polo Shirts

We are currently speaking with the suppliers of Polo/Golf Shirts for the McGrath Clan Gathering Weekend.

In this respect, we have 3 options, (a) A McGrath Clan polo/golf shirt, (b) a McGrath Clan, Dungarvan 2013 polo/golf shirt or (c) an McGrath Clan, Ireland V Rest of The World Dungarvan 2013 polo/golf shirt.

As soon as we have a price for a good quality shirt we’ll let people know and they can order prior to the weekend, so that we have stocks of the correct sizes.

McGrath Clan Update

As planning continues for the McGrath Clan Gathering next June, the pieces are starting to fall into place. We have secured the services of a Genealogist for the event, so that if you are interested, you can get some help with tracing your family tree.

What we propose is that people contact the genealogist ahead of the visit and then meet over the weekend. A small fee will be charged by the genealogist for her services/ consultations.
