The kilt was very well received by all with whom Larry and his French friends spoke that day.
Larry’s courage for skiing in a kilt in such terrain, or at all for that matter. Two Scots wished they had worn their kilts, with one saying he had always wanted to try it but his wife had always nixed the idea! There’s no finer way to refortify those burning thighs than over a relaxing lunch with all the fixin’s from French wine and cheese through a sinfully sweet dessert. The kilt was also very well received at the Moulin Rouge for dinner and the Bal du Moulin Rouge spectacle which is not a bad way to spend a Saturday evening in Paris! This was so much fun that we will likely be on the slopes in kilt and tartan again next year for Tartan Day.
Or, maybe we’ll be in some distant exotic destination skiing, hang-gliding, or parasailing in the Pyrénées! If you have an idea for something fun to do for Tartan Day, especially if it is in some exciting location then we would like to hear from you. Maybe you’d even like to take part in the planning.

Our Society planned another tour of Cunningham sites in France and Ireland. If you missed our previous tours, this was your chance to visit some of the highlights from our 2003 and 2004 tours, along with new sites like Slane Castle among many others. Our tour of Clan Cunningham historical sites in France and Scotland was dependent upon the interest and participation of our membership and the general public who were also welcome. Our basic itinerary included some new discoveries!
200 deposit from a minimum of 12 individuals, which was refunded in full after the tour was canceled. In the North of Ireland we planned to visit Springhill House near Belfast originally settled by William Conyngham in 1680. This plantation house has been preserved with the artifacts from 300 years of Conyngham family residence there. In 1957 Captain William Lenox-Conyngham left it to the National Trust. Also in Donegal is the quaint coastal town of Mount Charles, founded by Charles Cunningham also during the 17th century.EnableInternalCSP_request
