Exciting news! Clan O'Brien has attended 11 Scottish, Irish/Celtic festivals in California for the last ten years. This year the Clan O'Brien tent will only be attending four events (Woodlands, Livermore, Monterey & Pleasanton). This year will be the first year at Pleasanton, the largest Scottish event on the West Coast. Happily, Clan O'Brien will be the only recognized Irish Clan at these events.

The Clan of the DalgCais Mailing List has been added. This list is meant for those who wish to share histories, culture and research. It is considered a family mailing list as all Dalcassians are cousins. Enjoy.

Just a reminder to all the Dalcassian Clans invited to the LA Irish Fair & Music Festival on March 11-12 in Pamonoa, California. Be sure to get your applications in early so planning is made easier. The Chief of the Dalcassians is the Special Guest this year. This is a great time to learn how to set up an Irish Clan tent and how we help all our Irish cousins learn about their heritage.

Besides the new website appearance, a DNA projects page has been added. Many Dalcassian Families are conducting DNA studies for their family name. Check to see if you family is involved. It would be interesting to see if any of the families are related through this DNA process.

A heads up for Dalcassian Clans and members.  Check the Festival section for a list of festivals in your area.  Clans can get together at these festivals and have a great time.  A festival of note, the Long's Peak Scottish and Irish Festival at Estes Park, Colorado will be attended by two Irish Clans this year on Sept 9-12.  Clan O'Hannon and Clan O'Brien will have a Clan tent there for any and all Dalcassian members to stop by and visit.  This is one of the largest festivals in the country.  Because of planning and travel, notice is given now for people to plan on attending.  Check the Festival page for other festivals attended by Clan O'Hannon and Clan O'Brien.
