Welcome to the Ulster Clans of Ireland website . You will also find us on our busier Facebook group with same name . :D

The Ulster Clans are part of the great clans of Ireland who shaped the very path of Irish history for hundreds of years. For our ancestors and those associated with them it was a constant struggle to preserve a way of life. In the end much of the cultural heritage and traditions as well as the native language were lost.
As we reflect on the history of our ancestors we recognise that their stories of happiness, hardship, and resilience are worth remembering and recording for ourselves as well as for future generations. We do so not with bitterness and resentment but with awe and admiration for all that they accomplished.
Anyone associated with the Ulster Clans can trace his or her genealogy dating back to the High Kings of Ireland. Today there are many clans of Ulster who are spread throughout Ireland as well as many others spread throughout the world. Our goal is to reunite everyone associated with the Ulster Clans and to explore the rich history of our ancestors. We encourage everyone to join the website and to become an active participant: Record your own family history as much as you know of it, get to know the other members on the site, share old stories, read about the history of your ancestors and enjoy an informal friendly exchange of ideas and information.
The idea for this group and the website was first envisioned in July 2014 by Belfast born Tricia Morrow, an enthusiastic genealogist and descendant from O'Neill Clan from County Tyrone Ireland and descended from other Ulster clans, it has since grown to include members from Ireland, Germany, United States, Canada, Australia and of course our Gaelic cousins in Scotland as well as rest of Uk
