President Michael D. Higgins

The Patron of Clans of Ireland is Michael D. Higgins, President of Ireland.

It is an enormous honour for Clans of Ireland and the many Clans we represent that the President of Ireland has agreed to be our Patron.

Irish culture and heritage have always been close to the President’s heart. He was Ireland’s first Minister for Arts, Culture and the Gaeltacht and now as President of Ireland he continues to be a champion of creativity in Irish society.

We are very grateful to President Higgins for the support and encouragement he gives to Clans of Ireland and our work with Irish Clans.
