Where we come from - The Irwin Diaspora
Clan Irwin Association members come from a wide variety of roots in Scotland, Ulster and Ireland. Hailing from the Borders, Royal Deeside, the Orkneys, Ulster and the Republic of Ireland, we have been part of the great Scottish diaspora. From mostly humble beginnings, our emigrant forefathers settled in Canada, The United States, Australia, New Zealand and many other countries.
