Mackie Clan Reunion

Peter and Emily Mackie, the owners of Lissanoure Castle hosted a family reunion for all the descendants of the founders of the Belfast firm, James Mackie and Sons. There hadn’t been a big family gathering since 1966. There was a great turn out and family came from America, Lebanon, England, Scotland and the continent. It was a huge success and a wonderful opportunity for the family to meet up with family that they hadn’t seen for years and to meet new members they had never met before. John Watt wrote about it, see his article below and Bobbie Hanvey took some amazing photographs to record the event.
