Dwyers/O’Dwyers Reunion

I have received the following press release from Marilyn Dwyert concerning the Dwyers/O’Dwyers reunion. She told me that the Clan meet every 3 years and has always been in Tipperary, Ireland in the past, but this year it takes place in Williamsburg, VA in the States.

‘The reunion will gather once more in 2012, this time in the U.S. at Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia from Thurs-Sat Sept 20-22nd inclusive.

The setting is indeed historic. Williamsburg, together with sister towns Jamestown and Yorktown, form the Historic Triangle and is probably the most-visited historic site in the States. The epicenter at Colonial Williamsburg comprises a fully restored town with many surviving original buildings as well as newly reconstructed replicas on over 300 acres, and claims to be the “largest outdoor museum in the world”. With period costumes and the occasional re-enactment, the visitor gets a real feel for life in the days of the American Revolution.

It promises to be a great weekend for young and old, and all those associated with the O’Dwyer name are very welcome to attend. It will be an ideal opportunity to meet new friends, and who knows, maybe find a long-lost cousin or two.

We hope to see you there”.
