Clann MacKenna was established in 1990 to bring together McKennas locally, in and around Monaghan, and worldwide. The MacKenna name comes in many versions – MacKenna, McKenna, McKenny, MacCionaith and many more. Since it was established, Clann MacKenna has brought many members of the McKenna clan together at Clann McKenna events and we have developed close links in Monaghan and elsewhere including, Miramichi (St. Edward Island, Canada), New Zealand, USA, and we have also developed close links with the McKenna Clan of Chile, Argentina and other South American countries. Clann MacKenna also researches MacKenna history and heritage and to date we have published 10 “Clann MacKenna” Family History Books or Journals. New members always welcome.
