A Path Well Travelled

Dysert O`Dea Clan Association > Blog

After 48 years in the travel industry, Brexit and Covid killed my business but I wanted to remember the travel industry so I wrote it all down in  my book "A Path Well Travelled" which is available on Amazon in paperback and kindle. The section on Ireland has a couple of pages of my memories of the Clan Gatherings from 2002 to 2014. I hope that some of you would like to read it. It was published in May 2021 and it has great reviews on Amazon 

Amazon,com paperback $18.94 Kindle $5.28

We are limiting numbers able to attend to 60 participants on a first come basis and a non-refundable holding deposit of €50 per person will be required with your Expression of Interest to attend the weekend.  The programme of weekend events will be similar to previous Clan gatherings.

The organisers are looking forward to another exciting and most enjoyable Clan gathering this year and look forward to renewing old acquaintances and meeting new attendees.
