Interesting reading about the family history as I didn't think we had one. Love to you my Clancy brothers and sisters
My father came from County Clare and certainly had a fighting spirit encouraging me to take up boxing in my youth. That fighting spirit has remained with me but I swapped the gloves for a pen.

My grandfather William came from Ireland and all of the family I know of settled in Connecticut in the USA. My best wishes to my brethren out there.
Florida - USA. We have spread 'round the globe.
My family is from South Philadelphia. My father was one of 9, and will be 80 years old soon. Healthy as can be. We're not sure about were his father was born, as he did not talk much about his past. Hello to all the Clancys out there ... Pay attention to the old black and white movies ... in almost every one there is a police officer (with brogue) named Clancy .... xo

I am a fifth generation Irish Canadian from Montreal, Quebec now living in Toronto, Ontario. My aunt and sister travelled to Ireland. They uncovered very little information, but what they did find out was that, our family seems to have been from County Clare. We are possibly related to Boetius Clancy. He was an MP, well educated and Sheriff of County Clare in AD 1585 I was a little perturbed to find out that he was charged by William FitzWilliam dupty Sheriff to take any Spanish captives and all spoils of any Spanish Galleons of the Armada that become wrecked on the shores of Ireland. The Spanish Armada ran into serious trouble in a storm off the coast of Ireland. In 1588 Boetius Clancy imprisoned surviving Spanish crew members of two wrecked galleons and consequently tortured them and latter had them all executed. A rather shocking revelation but not too uncommon for the the brutality of times.
