Clan Tartan

Dysert O`Dea Clan > Blog

Hello fellow clanspeople,

I am to attend a wedding in Scotland for a cousin in August 2024 and am wondering if we have finally agreed on a clan tartan? If you could let me know whether we have an official tartan that has been agreed it would be very much appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

A Message from the Dysert O’Dea Castle Committee

Dysert O`Dea Clan > Blog

Dear Clan Members,

Here is a message from the Dysert O’Dea Castle Committee.

“As a result of Covid 19 restrictions and a severe downturn in business, including the closing of Dysert O’Dea Castle in 2020 and 2021, free admission to the Castle for members of the O’Dea Clan Association has been withdrawn indefinitely, effective from 16 March 2021, by the Castle Committee.  It is hoped that Dysert O’Dea Castle will reopen again in 2022.”
