The Fahey family will be holding a reunion on Sunday, September 26 at Appin Park, 4 Market Street, Appin.

On September 7, 1841, Thomas Fahey (26) and his wife Catherine (21) arrived in Australia on the ship 'United Kingdom'.

With Thomas were his five brothers, William (24), Peter (22), Edward (21), James (19) and Timothy (16).

The brothers were assisted (County) immigrants and exiles from "Erin".

They were recommended by their Priest as being "fit, young and willing to work".

William Fahey with his wife Elizabeth (nee Reid) settled in the Boorowa/Reids Flat area around 1848.

Together they had fourteen children and settled on a property in Reid's Flat, which they called 'Green Hills' (now Eurimburra).

The Boorowa Museum has been asked to advertise the Reunion and can be contacted on 0428 853 715 (Research Officer) or Catherine Ryan, Chairperson for Fahey Family Reunion Organising Committee who can be contacted on cryan211608@gmail.com for further details.
