Dear Visitor,

Consider this your official invitation from the 2024 PEI Planning Committee to join us on PEI June 20-23, 2024 for the third bi-ennial Treinfhir Family Gathering. We are working hard to create a get-back-together event that will be joy-filled and enlightening……leaving you with wishes to come back for more. The full schedule is being finalized and will be offered soon, but we thought you might like to see a few of the half-day and one full-day coach tours that will be offered.

All tours will include a lunch and several stops for the best appreciation of the area you will be visiting, as well as a bit of musical entertainment here and there. Every tour will take you through rolling Irish-green hills, newly planted, red-soiled fields of potatoes and barley, and breathtaking views of coastal red and white sand beaches. Here are just some of the highlights.

The North Shore Tour will visit Anne of Green Gables and PEI National Park. The South Shore Tour will stop at Victoria-by-the-Sea, a beautiful, quaint village that offers shopping and chocolate. The Up West Tour will stop at the Potato Museum, a working fishing harbor, and the Shipbuilding Museum. Other tours will visit Fort Augustus, Emyvale, Kelly’s Cross and Kinkora cemeteries where our ancestors rest.

We’ve lots of craic built in too at the Olde Triangle Pub in Charlottetown and the Glenaladale Heritage Event Center on Tracadie Bay.

We are looking forward to seeing you on our beautiful Island next summer. And while June-2024 seems a long time coming, it will be here in the blink of an eye. So, don’t wait to register or make your lodging arrangements. Remember, PEI is a popular tourist destination and we won’t be the only folks here that weekend.
