The O’Brien’s in 2014August 8th, 2011 by Paul O'Brien
O’Brien and Dalcasian Clans are destined for Ireland in 2014 for an event to reunite the hundreds of thousands of O’Briens throughout the world (over 700,000 O’Brien’s in the United States alone that have traced their roots to Brian Ború from Killaloe, County Clare!)
The Board of Directors of the O’Brien Clan Foundation are pleased to announce that the reception and banquet to celebrate the millennium of the Battle of Clontarf and the Death of High King Brian Boru will be held on April 25th, 2014 at Clontarf Castle, Dublin. Battle re-enactments, musical evenings and much more will be held throughout Ireland to mark this major occasion.
All interested in attending this once in a lifetime event must register here with the IrishTourism Group or contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org. As tickets to the banquet are limited, priority will be given to packages that include accommodation at Clontarf Castle or packages from the Brian Boru Tour series.
This tour will allow you to discover the journey Brian Ború undertook to become the High King of Ireland. Visit pivotal locations such as Cashel where he became High King of Munster, his homestead in Killaloe, Tara, where he became King of Ireland, the site of the Battle of Clontarf and of course Armagh, his final resting place. This is a great opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the greatest warrior and king of ancient Ireland. These tours also allow you the opportunity to visit such other famous landmarks as Blarney castle, The Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands, Ring of Kerry, Newgrange Tombs and much more.

This reunion, of those bearing the O’Brien name, will not only encourage the discovery of the roots of our ancestors, but will connect everyone with other O’Briens from around the world, throughout Ireland, and through the shared memories of Ireland as the birthplace of our ancestors.
