PART 2 THE MACCORMICKS – A ROSS OF MULL/ISLE OF IONA FAMILY – THE 1993 FAMILY GATHERING


macfam5a             macfam4 001macfam3a 001 Apologies for the poor scans. For those, like me, without the Gaelic,  the script translates as Food and Drink to the MacCormicks, from an inscription on the entrance to Moy Castle on Mull. This outstanding event was made possible thanks to the enterprise and hard work of: Professor (later Sir) Donald Neil MacCormick His brother, Iain MacCormick John Harper-Nelson and the multi-talented Treasurer and soloist, Iain MacKinnon Over one hundred descendants of NEIL AND ANNABEL MACCORMICK  attended the gathering.  Unfortunately, I do not have a list of the participants.  Perhaps others may be able to fill this gap. From memory, I believe eight of the  nine married  NEIL AND ANNABEL children  were represented at the gathering. Happily, a radio program was recorded which enables us to recall or vicariously join in the proceedings.
