Marian Quinlan Curtin's poem at opening of the Curtin Gathering  September 2015, Grand Island, New York

Every so often
We gather together To meet and greet
To laugh and sing
To learn
All about our past

Family by name
Four counties
In the beautiful
Island of Ireland
Kerry, Cork, Limerick
And Clare
There are
A few more Curtins
Scattered around Ireland
Here and there

All around the world
Australia, Tasmania,
Canada America
England Scotland
Almost every country
Has a link by name

From way back
In Famine times
Our forefathers left
Their native land
Through hunger
To give a better
To their Children’s
So we gather
Every four years
In our native land Ireland
And every two somewhere
Else in the world
Where the Curtin name
Is carried
With pride

So from September
The eleventh to the thirteenth
Twenty fifteen
We gather as a family
By name, by blood
And by friendship
We learn about
Our past, our links
And our DNA
We laugh
Tell stories
Do a bit of
Irish dancing
Forge friendships
That will last a lifetime
All thanks to
The Curtin Clan
