 **** Family Reunion a great success****

The weekend at Awakeri Hot Springs was attended by 62 family members as recorded by Ngaire Anderson in the official attendance register. All branches of the Maurice Finucane family were represented.

Please email in any photo's you want added to the reunion gallery which will be set up shortly.

The descendants of Maurice and Isabell Finucane have held three family reunions, the first in 1985, the second in 1996 and the third in 2009.  We have had a lot of fun at these events but concerns were raised about the passing on of our history to the younger generations, and so I have attempted to compile not only factual history but also the memoirs of family members. 

I want to dedicate my efforts to Grandpop (Maurice) who was keen on the idea of writing down memories.

We are primarily concerned with the descendants of Michael Finucane (born 1821 in Ennis, County Clare, Ireland) who came to New Zealand with the 65th (2nd Yorkshire North Riding) Regiment of Foot. However, we welcome all contact and information from other sections of the Finucane family, especially those in good ol' eN Zed.
