The 2016 Clann Chaomhánach Gathering will be held at The Millrace Hotel, Bunclody, Co. Wexford. The Gathering Programme will include tours, lectures, genealogy consultations and lots more which we hope everyone will enjoy. A more detailed “Programme of Events” will be added later.


The Millrace Hotel is in the centre of the town and has 40 double rooms, 20 twin rooms (2 people in each room) and 12 family apartments (3 people in each apartment). The hotel has excellent food and great facilities with restaurants and activity rooms.


A very attractive rate for 4 days of the Gathering has been negotiated with the hotel at €216 euro per person sharing, and €276 euro single, including breakfasts. If you plan to stay in the Millrace, the number of rooms is limited and you should book early by contacting Lorraine Galvin at Reservations, e-mail: The subject line of your e-mail should be “Clann Chaomhánach Gathering 2016”. This will ensure that you are given the agreed reduced prices for your stay at the Gathering. Fergus will help look after the accommodation reservations, and you can contact him as usual at . In addition, there are some B&Bs in the area which are in the range of €40-60 per person per night.


Bunclody is a small town which lies north east of MountLeinster, in the Slaney River Valley . This is Caomhánach country, with Carrickduff the home of Col. Charles Cavanagh, grandson of Donal Spannaigh, and ancestor of a large group of descendants living in the U.S.   Carrickduff is situated at one end of the town. Just outside the other end of Bunclody there is Kilmyshal cemetery, the burial place of Eileen Aroon, whose romantic story is the basis of that famous ballad of the same name. Bunclody will be an ideal venue with plenty of facilities to ensure a very enjoyable gathering.
