Clan Rally

The Cassidy Gathering of the Clan is held in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, close to the ancestral lands of the Cassidys.

The weekend event celebrates Irish culture and history, including local history and the Cassidy role within it, through stories, musical performances, and genealogy and cultural presentations.

The rally features a guided tour of the area where Cassidys originated including the Cassidy ancestral path. On Sunday evening, the rally concludes with our Gala Dinner, which is always one of the main events.

The 2017 Gathering was a great success as attendees stood on Devenish Island to witness the Inauguration of Nuala Cassidy of Lurgan, County Armagh, as “An Caisideach,” or chief of the Cassidy Clan.

Traditionally, we have held the Clan Rally every three years. Due to pandemic, however, we did not host a rally in 2020. Instead, we had a wonderful gathering in 2022. We expect the next rally will take place in Summer 2025.

  1. I have a question to ask about the rally but do not want it to be a public question. How do I contact you privately?

      1. Dear Nuala,
        I sent you a private message a couple of weeks ago and am waiting for your reply. Hope all is going well for the clan gathering. We are so sad that we are unable to attend this year. Any chance that someone will stream it?

  3. I made a deposit in 2020 of 50 pounds for myself and wife. Does this deposit apply to this year’s rally? I registered for this years rally, but checked No to making the deposit and left the same question.

    1. Dan – My apology for the delay in responding. Yes, we will honor all previous deposits for the rally that was cancelled due to Covid. We are looking forward to seeing you this Summer.

  4. Can you tell me how many have already registered? My cousin and I want to attend but concerned that Covid has stopped many.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Margaret – right now it’s about 15 persons. We had some difficulties with pinning down the date for the rally with the host hotel, and of course Covid created uncertainty last year (when we would have normally posted the date for the rally). That noted, many persons have expressed interest in attending and we are hopeful we will have a strong turnout. The Cassidy Clan is a volunteer run organization where no one receives any compensation. We try our best to host a wonderful, well-attended rally every three years. So for we have been successful for each rally. We likely will not have another rally until 2025. We hope you can join us in Ireland this Summer. Stephen
