From September 23rd to the 25th, the 7th Mansergh Family Clan gathering will take place in Tipperary Town. Philippa Mansergh Wallace organised the first Rally in 1996 and one has been held every four years since. This year’s gathering will see people coming from Spain, Germany, England, USA & Ireland. And there are 28 family members coming from Australia. Over 70 people will meet at the Tipperary Excel on the Friday evening for registration and a welcome reception followed by a visit to a local bar for a trad session and getting to know each other. On the Saturday there will be a coach excursion taking in places associated with the family in the Templemore area. People from all over the world identify themselves as members of the Mansergh Clan because they trace their family roots to the Mansergh family of Grenane House, or trace their family roots to the Manzerge named in the Doomsday book of 1066, Vol. 1, pg 301, or feel connected in some way to the Mansergh name. To all our visitors for this special event we say “Failte Thiobraid Arann.”
