Clans of Ireland - View Website

Finte na hÉireann ~ Clans of Ireland is an independent permanent authority established in 1989 to:


  • Authenticate and register Irish Clans and historical families
  • promote the interests of Irish Clans and historical families
  • provide authentic and scholarly information related to Irish Clans and historical families.

We are regularly consulted by government agencies, embassies, historical and cultural groups, the media and members of the general public. We maintain a very strong and positive relationship with the Standing Council of Irish Chiefs and Chieftains who represent the hereditary Chiefs.
