Clan Rally

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

Traditionally, we host rally every three years. Our next rally will take place in 2025 from Friday 4 July through Sunday 6 July.

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.

2025 Cassidy Clan Rally

The host hotel for the Cassidy Clan Rally is the beautiful Killyhevlin Lakeside Hotel and Resort, which is situated to the immediate south of the center of Enniskillen and along Lough (River) Erne.

The rally will commence on the evening of Friday 4th July and conclude with the banquet dinner on the night of Sunday 6th July, 2025, with departure on Monday July 7th.

While the program and prices for the Rally are still being organised, the rally will feature a guided tour of the area where Cassidys originated including the Cassidy ancestral rath. On Sunday evening, the rally concludes with our Gala Dinner, which is always one of the main events.

A wish has been expressed for an outing by bus to the Ulster American Folk Park during the day on Friday 4th. Anyone wishing to participate in this outing should plan to arrive on Thursday 3rd July.  The Ulster American Folk Park is an open air history centre where costumed actors and period buildings tell the story of Irish emigration. 

The Cassidy Clan is a purely voluntary organization. We appreciate your interest and support. We set the prices for the rally as close as possible to match charges by the hotel, buses and tour operators we hire for rally attendees.

  1. My mother was a Cassidy and I am very interested in learning more about my ancestral family. My mother’s father,Ross Ephraim Cassidy, was born in Kentucky in the late 1800’s and later moved to Oklahoma. After he married, he returned to the midwest for work and lived in Illinois and Kentucky. I currently reside in south-central Illinois. I am also interested in attending the Clan Rally in 2025.

  2. My name is Tannis Curtis and my mother’s maiden name was Cassidy . Her mother , my grandmother , was Sadie Cassidy by marriage to Frank Cassidy both of Winnipeg , Manitoba . He had a printing business there but I don’t know from what part of Ireland he originated as I never met him and by the looks of the old photos of them together it was the early part of the 20th century 1900-1920 when they married .
