Nollaig Shona Duit – Merry Christmas

Dear friends of the Nolan Clan,

This year has been a busy year for our clan culminating in a successful Gathering in Carlow of many Nolans from within Ireland and abroad. We would like to thank those who contributed to the Gathering’s success and look forward to many more of you joining us at our next Gathering in 2019.

On behalf of myself, as the new Chief of the Clan, and all of the Clan Committee Members, I would like to wish all Nolan’s, Nowlan’s etc throughout the world a very Happy Christmas and Peaceful New Year.


Catherina (Nolan) O’Brien
