Finte O’Broin will host the official Byrne gathering at the Ballinacor Estate near Rathdrum in County Wicklow on Saturday the 20th of July at 3pm.
There will be a reenactment of the capture and execution of Feagh Mac Hugh O’Byrne by Cliomh, a professional historical and Military reenactment group and an exhibition of medieval costume and weaponry.
The event will also include the 2013 presentation of the Clan Merit Order of the Raven and the unveiling of the plaque above at Fananierin on the Ballinacor Estate, the very spot where Feagh was captured and executed on Sunday the 8th of May 1597.
We are delighted to be joined by Lt. Col. Charles Artaud Byrne and his son Myles and other members of the family.
We are also immensly grateful for the support and enthusiasm of Sir Robert Goff, Lady Davis Goff, Clare Bradley and the staff of Ballinacor Estate. Without their kindness and encouragment this historic event would simply not have been possible.
We hope that you will all join us on the day. Admission is free and gates to the estate open at 2pm.

To the gathering and beyond.
Derek, O’Byrne of Downs, Guardian of the Name.
