Treacy Family Gathering

 

On 5th July 2008 a reunion of three generations of the Treacy Clan (descendants of Martin and Nora, Fantane) was hosted by Willie and Geraldine in the ancestral home. A tented village was set up in the 'hurling field' to cater for all 122 people. Father Liam Everard P.P. opened the event by celebrating Mass.

 

A pig cooked on a 'spit' was quickly demolished as were several barbecued burgers and sausages. A chocolate fountain was greeted with delight by those with a sweet tooth.

Then came the sporting events (reminiscent of times past) - egg 'n spoon, sack races etc. The highlight was the over seventies race.

 

As darkness fell an oak tree was planted and and a plaque was laid to mark the event. Then it was on to the musical entertainment provided 'in house' and which continued to the small hours. Tunes were played, songs were sung and sets were danced. A once in a lifetime reunion. Buíochas le Dia.
