Gathering of the Clans, Norah Head, announces that regrettably the festival is to be discontinued
The organisers of the Central Coast Gathering of the Clans have advised that after 20 increasingly successful years, the festival is to be discontinued. The recent resignation of the committee chair was the last of a series of occurrences which contributed to the event becoming unviable.

"The GOTC Committee thanks you for your support over the years and wish you every success as you help clan-folk and others explore, discover and celebrate their heritage."

Around the clans

Clan Buchanan - 1000 years a Scottish Clan (1016 - 2016)

The genesis of many Scottish clans arise in the mists of time. So too is the origin of the ancient Clan Buchanan. The clan’s seanachaidhs of old tell the story of the chiefly line dating back to Anselan Buey O’Kyan who left Ireland and landed in Argyll in 1016, the twelfth year of King Malcolm II. It is said that Anselan was of the Irish clan Ó’Catháin, a provincial king of north Ulster.
