CLAN LIST There are many amateurs in many countries who claim Irish ancestors. To them we offer the opportunity to have your call entered to the IRTS Clan Listing. You only require one QSO with EI13CLAN to apply for an entry on the the Clan list. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the QSO, plus your call, the name and relationship of your Irish ancestor and if known, the year they left Ireland and the town or county where they lived before emigrating. These details will be added to the list, which will eventually be accessable from the IRTS website. You can therefore find other amateurs with whom you may share a common Irish ancestral name.
CLAN CERTIFICATE.. A Certificate showing your ancestral detail and clan name is also available. Full details on how to apply is at http://irts.ie/clancq. A sample certificate is shown below.
