The MacDonagh Family Gathering was inspired by my work in compiling my family history. I would like to invite the descendants of my great grandparents, Myles MacDonagh and Anne Flaherty originally from Carraroe, Co. Galway, Ireland to the event. Our descendants number 400+ and many are young people who may never have met so I thought it would be a good idea to connect them with each other. 250 approx live in the US and the remaining 150+ live around the world. The main event of the Family Gathering is a buffet dinner on 15th June 2013 with musical entertainment by the well known group, the Galway Ramblers, and an Irish dancing display by the Celine Hession School of Dancing. There will be an informal get-together on Friday evening, 14th June and a bus trip on Sunday 16th June to Carraroe, Co. Galway. A walking tour of Galway is also planned for Saturday morning, 15th June. My family and I are looking forward to welcoming many descendants of our great grandparents to Galway next June.
