RALLY 2012: 2012 Newsletter

  2011 December News

RALLY 2012: Join your kinfolks from Ireland, Australia, Canada, the United States and other parts unknown to share an historic Egan journey through Ireland's beautiful highways and byways. The 2012 Rally will be lead by our Chief, Mac Aodhagáin Michael J. S. Egan. We will visit many historical Egan sites not reached on prior Rallies. It is now time for you to be booking your travel arrangements as described herein.

The planned Egan Rally will begin at Bunratty in County Claire on the West Coast of Ireland, near Shannon Airport. In the evening of Sunday, June 24, there will be an informal gathering for libation and food. On Monday, June 25, we will register and then proceed by bus to the Killarney Lakes area and the market town of Macroom on the River Sullane - once a meeting place for the Druids of Munster from whom it is rumored that Egans descended - and where Brian Boru won a significant battle as a result of which he was named King of Munster.....

  2011 August News

RALLY 2012: The next Clan Egan Ireland Rally 2012 will be held from 25 June – 1 July 2012. This is a few days longer than usual. The 2012 Clan Rally is planned as a full week of activities starting and finishing in Bunratty, Co. Clare on the West coast. Participants should plan to arrive and stay in Bunratty on the 24th June (the closest airport is Shannon).

The Rally 2012 itinerary has letters placed on the various locations... Then there is a map for each day's trip with the letters in the locations corresponding to the itinerary as best I can tell. Finally there is an overall map. A table in the modified itinerary identifies the letters on the latter with the letters listed for each day.

It is time for all of us to be making our travel plans and advising us how many in your party will be coming so that plans can be made in Ireland. This will be a super Rally that all of you should attend.
