The first Gathering of the modern-day Nolan Clan was held in 1996 shortly after the creation of the Clan organization. For the first few years, Gatherings were held annually and, since 2000, they have been held every second year.
The last Nolan Clan Gathering, the 12th one in the Clan’s history, took place on the weekend of the 9th-10th-11th September 2017 in County Carlow and you may view the report on this gathering in the March 2018 issue of the Clan newsletter.
Given that planned activities for any clan gathering usually cover only one, two or at most three days, clan members planning to attend a gathering are strongly advised to coordinate their attendance with a broader programme of activities for themselves and their party while in Ireland, including perhaps making visits to friends, conducting personal family research, sightseeing, visiting museums, historic theme parks, etc.
