Originally posted by franklaw on May 30, 2011

The annual gathering of the Clan Hannay Society was held on Saturday May 28th with the 49th AGM and lunch in Garlieston Village Hall, followed by a visit to Sorbie Tower. In the evening there was a dinner and Ceilidh/dance at the Creebridge Hotel. Sixty five people attended the gathering, with fifteen from America, four from Australia, four from Northern Ireland, two from Canada, and UK members from Sutherland in the North to Cornwall in the South.

Before lunch a report was presented by a conservation architect on the possibility of re-roofing the Tower. After lunch, members gathered at the Tower led by the clan piper, David Hanna from Northern Ireland. On Sunday, there was an Open Day at Sorbie Tower with over 100 visitors, when tours were led by Stephen Hanna, who with Wendy Ronan is one of the Tower wardens, and is now convenor of the Clan Hannay Society.
