250th Anniversary of Exodus (1764 – 2014)

May 10, 2014 - July 26, 2014

2014 is the Cahans exodus 250th anniversary year, and we will celebrate this historic event. At this point we invite descendants of the original emigrés and all others interested in Cahans past and future to plan to visit Ireland, Ballybay and Cahans in 2014, preferably between May and July. The Cahans group left Ballybay 10 May and arrived at New York on 28 July.

The outline plan for the walk is:

  • Saturday 10 May 2014 (the date of the sailing in 1764) – Begin the ‘returning to Cahans’ walk leaving from Narrow Water
  • Saturdays 14 & 28 June 2014 –  continuing the walk
  • Saturday 26 July 2014 –  arriving at Cahans.

An evening of music and food will follow.
More details as they become available.
