Finte na hÉireann ~ Clans of Ireland

Redwood Castle  
Clan MacEgan, Egan, Eagan, Keegan, Agin and Agins  



Welcome to the home of the Clan Egan, for the descendants of Aodhagáin, hereditary Brehons (or Judges) in Connaught, Leinster and Ormond. This includes the anglicised names MacEgan, Egan, Eagan, Eagen and Keegan.

The purpose of the Clann Mac Aodhagáin web site is to provide a common repository for information concerning the MacEgan families in all their differing spellings.


Please mark your calendars for the 2016 Clan Egan Rally to be held in Dublin, Ireland, from June 26 through July 3, 2016. Our Chief, Michael J.S. Egan is planning that our Rally will be centered in and around Dublin and is working on its details.

The 2016 Rally coincides with the 100th Anniversary of the Rising of 1916 which led to Ireland gaining its independence. Since many of the events surrounding the Rising of 1916 occurred in Dublin and there will be many events in Dublin that year relating to the Rising, 2016 will be a particularly significant year for us to be in Dublin. Because others will have the same idea and demand for accommodations in Dublin will be higher than normal, we should book our rooms soon to assure availability. An outline of the preliminary Rally schedule that our Chief has developed follows:
