Letter from the Crowley Clan Taoiseach

I enjoyed seeing so many of you at the Crowley Clan Gathering in Clonakilty in September. Wish you all could have been there. And I was extremely honored to be chosen Taoiseach of the Crowley Clan.

I thank the Crowley Clan Council for their faith in me. Others elected are Jerry Crowley (Crossmahon) Taniste, Mary Flynn (Ballinadeen) Runai, Flor Crowley (Bandon) Treasurer, Country Reps John A. Crowley, (2506 Elton St., Albany, GA 31707, USA), Terry Crowley, (86 Anglese St., Goderich, Ontario, N7A 1V3, Canada), and Pauline Crowley-Zieltjes (614 Kelly Road, RD 3, New Plymouth, Taranak, New Zealand). Castle donations can be mailed to your Country Rep.

At the banquet I asked everyone for their ideas for the future of the Crowley Clan and for their help in carrying those ideas out. I was pleasantly surprised with the response. We now have people working on several projects, and I hope to report on their progress in future issues.

There was a great interest in doing more in the area of genealogy. I am currently looking for volunteers willing to chair sub-committees for their ancestors or for their geographical areas. Sue Crowley of Arizona (snowbirdsue@aol.com) will chair the Jeffrey Crowley Descendants Group. Maureen Crowley of Ontario (mcrowley@city.petersborough.on.ca) will chair the Petersborough, Ont. Group. This provides us with contact people for research and for questions about these sub-groups of Crowleys. If you have ideas and are willing to help implement them, please let me know.

Slán, Marian
