Conference dinner

The conference dinner will be held in the Dining Hall on the Trinity College Dublin campus in Dublin city centre.  The céilí will be in Atrium, which is adjacent to the Dining Hall.  Both are marked by the red circle on the campus map below.  Not all of the gates to the campus are open to the public.  The main public entry points are through the Eros gate on College Green at the western end of the campus or through the gate at the junction of Dawson Street and Nassau Street on the south-western boundary of the campus.

Following the dinner, we’re delighted to invite all conference delegates to join us for a traditional Irish céilí in the Trinity College Dublin Atrium, adjacent to the Dining Hall.

Performing at the céilí will be the Matt Cunningham Band, which has a long association with the set and céilí dancing traditions and through an acclaimed series of recordings and constant touring schedule it continues to delight audiences at home and abroad while at the same time endeavouring to safeguard the tradition. Matt, who lives in Headford, Co.Galway, formed his own band in 1972 having been a member of several other groups since his early teens. He and his band are not only applauded for their powerful performances at set and ceili dances but also for their many concert style shows and related recordings.
