The Official Clan Doyle




Welcome to THE DOYLE PAGE!

THE DOYLE  PAGE is the only official Internet site belonging to

The Clann O DubhGhaill/Clan Doyle .

The Clann O DubhGhaill/Clan Doyle  is registered with THE CLANS OF IRELAND OFFICE in  Ireland.

In recent years, the Clans of Ireland have become an important link to Irish culture and history for many people with Irish ancestry or family connections.

The Clans of Ireland Office was established as the governing body of family associations in Ireland by the Office of the Prime Minister of Ireland. The Clans of Ireland Office has the responsibility to assist Irish Clans in planning and holding Clan Gatherings, and to help publicise and organise the Irish Clans. With funding from Bord Failte (Irish Tourist Board) and the European Union, the Clans of Ireland Office has succeeded in registering nearly 200 Irish Clans, and this year will hold over 40 Clan Gatherings, attended by more than 10,000 people of Irish descent. Some Irish surnames have roots originating in the 5th century A.D. and earlier. Some descend from kings and ruling families who were prominent in Irish history, while others descend from famous intellectual or bardic families who preserved the history and culture of their nation for posterity. Others, like the Doyles, trace their origins to the warlike Viking invaders from Scandinavia. Still others trace their family origins to the Norman knights who also came to fight, and then settled in Ireland. They all represent the rich fabric of Irish society and have contributed to our ancient culture and heritage. You are invited to celebrate and share in this heritage by participating in this movement, and even visiting the homes of your ancestors.
