As of January 2011 we were the newest clan on the Register of Clans of Clans of Ireland.
On the evening of 26 June 2003 the Clan met at Donamon [Dunamon] Castle on the River Suck which forms the border between Counties Roscommon and Galway. We believe this was the first and only clan gathering in over 700 years. The site of the castle and perhaps a part of it was the ancient seat of O'Finnerty of Clan Conway.
On that rainy evening in 2003 Peter Joseph Finnerty of Dublin and a native of Roscommon was elected as our Clan Leader [Cennaire] and Richard M. Finnerty of Honolulu, HI, a native of Wyoming USA was elected as the Tanaiste.
Unfortunately our Cennaire, Peter's health soon deteriorated and he passed away at 6 P.M on 13 August 2008. After one year of mouning in respect to our Cennaire Peter, Richard Finnerty assumed the responsibility for Clan matters. Richard registered the clan with Clans of Ireland, which occurred on or about December 10, 2010. and this website is the latest development in Clan activity. Our new website O'Finnerty, Finnerty, Finerty, Fenerty, Finaghty, Fenoughty, Finnachta, &etc. has been connected to Clans of Ireland [www.clansofireland].
