Dr Christy Cunniffe, Clonfert,County Galway, James Scully N.T. Meelick, County Galway and myself Gerard Madden are planning a Madden family reunion from the 22 April 2012 to the 28 April 2012. It is eight years since I published a History of the O'Maddens of Hy Many and we feel it is time to have another gathering. We hope to organize a weekend long festival of events including guided tours of O'Madden Castles, ecclesiastical sites, lectures, musicetc. If you are interested in this and wish to attend or help out please contact us We would appreciate your thoughts on this.
