Happy St. Patrick's Day

A DAY TO BE PROUD When you’re far away from home 

On the other side of the world 

The mailman arrives 

With goodies from home 

Cadburys chocolate

 And tayto crisps 

And in amongst it all

 Is a badge 

To wear 

On Saint Patrick’s Day 
A day for us all to be proud 

A day to celebrate 

Our love of culture 

Drink something green

 Wear the shamrock 

And a meal of bacon 

Cabbage, turnip, and potato 

The Irish flag 

On our dinner plate 

Of green white and gold 

We dance 

And make merry 

Floats and drums play 

In many local parades 

All around 

Our Island 

My home 

And all over the world Irish dancing 

Shown at its best 

Children getting the 

Irish flag painted 

On their faces 

The feast day of 

Our patron Saint 

Saint Patrick 

People visit 

From all over the world 

To our beautiful 

Island of Ireland 

On this day 

Every year 

On the 17th of March

Enjoy and be happy)

2019 Curtin Clan Gathering
April 11-14, 2019
Williamsburgh, VA

         Past Gatherings 

Check the Gathering tab for photos and other stuff.

ome to the Curtin Clan! 
Many of us enjoyed sitting around the table listening to stories from our grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents and cousins.  Many of those voices are now silent, yet our yearning to connect with the generations before us is still strong.  The Curtin Clan offers the opportunity to connect with stories that help us better understand our history.  

An important benefit of joining the Clan is connecting with Margaret Curtain, our genealogist.  She has collected a wealth of information from buying up thousands of documents for Curtin families worldwide since 1977. She is a founding member of the Clan, and was presented the insignia appointing her as a Companion of the Order of Clans of Ireland (CIOM) by the Irish vice counsel at the Chicago Gathering in June 2011. 


Another benefit is connecting with our DNA project coordinator, Dan Curtin. We have a number of Curtins who have participated and this will help expand your genealogy research.  We have quarterly newsletters and will have our next gathering in Williamsburg, Virginia in Spring 2019


 (Health to the men and may the women live forever!)
