The traditional Triennial Rally of the Society will resume at Kilkenny Castle in August 2024. So these are two great events to look forward to!

We'll keep you updated.

Meantime, take care.

The Butler Society


To preserve the records of our family, its manuscripts, its history and still living traditions.


To bring together the scattered branches of the Butlers and their kindred to renew old ties that are in danger of breaking.


Establish in Kilkenny a focal point of friendliness and family lore and to arrange reunions, during which, for a few days, the ties of blood and family tradition will count more than the national and political differences, which inevitably divide us.
