People from Clare

Thousands of Clare people have left our shores over the past 200 years. Many were welcomed by friends and relatives who had travelled before them and enjoyed their support and friendship. Others worked in new lands with little contact from home. Clare people contributed in all walks of life including teaching, medicine, literature, industry, labour, law and defence. Many generously shared their rich culture of music and dance and cultivated this love of Irish customs in their families.

We have created a forum where the stories of these Clare people and their descendants can be collected. We have included short stories below and will be delighted to add information on your family ancestors. Get in touch.
