Power Clan Gathering Launched !

The Power Clan Gathering 2013 event was launched in Waterford City last week by His Excellency, the Canadian Ambassador to Ireland, Mr. Loyola Hearn.

Joining steering committee members, supporters and friends in the Granville Hotel, the Ambassador spoke of his affection for the area, the ties between Ireland and Canada and his excitement and enthusiasm for our event.  He  offered great advice and knowledge on how the steering committee could promote the event in Canada and beyond.  Earlier in the day, the Ambassador enjoyed a lunch at Harney’s of Dunhill following an interesting visit to Dunhill Castle – the ancestral home of all the Powers in Ireland and beyond.  He was also interviewed on local radio.

We would like to thank the Ambassador for his time and his enthusiasm and hope to see him and many of his fellow Newfoundlanders in Dunhill next summer.
