Our History

Craobh Phiarais Uí Ghréagáin is named in honour of Pádraig Piaras Ó Gréagáin. When Piaras, as he was generally known, was born in Dublin in July 1916 his father was a prisoner of war having fought in Boland’s Mill under Éamon de Valera, and Piaras was named after the recently executed Pádraig Mac Piarais.

Piaras’ extended family follow actively in his footsteps. His niece Mairéad Ní Ghréagáin is Musical Director and his sister in law, Sorcha Uí Ghréagáin, is President of the Branch.
