The O'Shaughnessy Society

Welcome to the homepage of the O'Shaughnessy Society

Our 2022 Rally was a great success.  We hope to have an on-line meeting in May 2023.

Please plan to attend our next gathering at the Lady Gregory Hotel in Gort, County Galway, 16 thru 19 May 2024.  A block of rooms will be reserved in early 2024.  Please contact to reserve a room at that time.

DunGuaire Castle has re-opened for banquets!  We are planning for Friday evening 17 May 2024.

Our Saturday excursion is yet to be planned.
