Frequently Asked Questions / If I join part way through the membership term, do I have to pay the full amount?

Yes.  If you join the Dysert O’Dea Clan Association part way through the membership term, you need to pay the full subscription.

If you join during a membership term, the effective start date for your membership will be back-dated to the 1st of July of the year in which the last Clan Gathering was held.  However, if you join in the last 6 months of the membership term, the effective start date will be forward-dated to the 1st of July of that year.

  • The membership period for the Dysert O’Dea Clan Association is from one Clan Gathering to the next.
  • Clan Gatherings are normally held every 3 years.
  • For practical reasons, the membership period begins on 1 July and ends on 30 June, 3 years later.
  • The last Clan Gathering was held in Ennis, Co. Clare in July 2014.
  • Under normal circumstances, the end of the current membership period would be 30 June 2017.
  • However, at the Clan Gathering in July 2014, the Clan decided that the next Clan Gathering would be held in 2018 in order to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Dysert O’Dea.
  • The current membership period is therefore 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2018.
  • If you join today, your membership term will be from today to 30 June 2018.
