Clans of Ireland Cultural Summit and AGM 2022

Clans of Ireland Cultural Summit and AGM

Friday 8th and Saturday 9th April 2022

St. Stephen's Green Club, Dublin


Recent government announcements relating to the easing of Covid restrictions throughout Ireland means that we can announce that the Annual Cultural Summit will take place at the Stephen's Green Club in Dublin, without regulatory restrictionson on capacity. The dates of Friday the 8th April and Saturday 9th April 2022 will hopefully give ample opportunity for those who travel from abroad to make arrangements..

Final plans for the event, which will be in a physical and online format, are being drawn up and will be announced over the coming weeks.

The theme for this year's Cultural Summit will be the destruction of the Public Records and State Papers in 1922. The records had been collected since the 13th century and were held in an ad hoc office at the Four Courts, Dublin.

Our speakers have been confirmed as follows: 

Dr Brian Gurrin “The 1766 religious census of Ireland”.


Dr Annaleigh Margey, Acting Head of Department of Humanities at Dundalk Institute of Technology who was part of the transcription project at TCD on the 1641 depositions.

The Cultural Summit will provide a first-in recent-times opportunity for many to combine an intellectually stimulating conference with a glamorous social event, the Annual Clans of Ireland Dinner on April 9th

There will also be an opportunity, for those who have not already done so, to purchase a copy of the recently launched anthology of essays for the Irish Chiefs’ and Clans’ prize in history, Gaelic Ireland (c.600-c.1700) Lordship, saints and learning, with one, if not both editors in attendance to inscribe your copy.

It is anticipated that many will hope to attend the AGM and Cutlural Summit in person. You are advised contact our Correspondence Secretary at with your intent on attending and to advise on the number in your party and the Clan that you represent. Those on this list will be advised first when the online booking system wll be available..
