I am delighted to report that the Finte O’Broin membership is about to reach the 300 mark!
Since its launch in June 2012 Finte O’Broin has remained a strong and vibrant clan society. We have been responsible for many major eventsing since establishing the organisation most notably the 2013 Gathering which saw many of our clan visit Ballinacor in Co. Wicklow and witness a reenactment of the capture of Feagh Mac Hugh O’Byrne as well as the unveiling of a plaque in his honour by his ancestor Lt. Col. Charles Artaud Byrne.
I am glad to say that in his 94th year, Charles is keeping very well at his home on Rhode Island, New York and sent kind wishes to all at Finte O’Broin at Christmas.
Last year saw our team concentrate on the highly successful International Napoleonic Congress which was held at the Saint Stephen’s Green Club in Dublin 2. For an entire week, delegates from all over the world were treated to presentations on the influences of the Napoleonic Era on Irish History and revolutionary zeal.
As Finte O’Broin moves towards reaching and surpassing 300 members from within the vast O’Byrne family at home in Ireland and throughout the world, we look forward to building our clan society even more and providing a central meeting point for all who belong to Clan O’Byrne.
Certavi et Vici,
