Global Irish Diaspora Congress

University College Dublin

15-19 August 2017


As you are aware from earlier communications and from Professor Tadhg O’Keefe’s presentation at Clans of Ireland AGM and Conference earlier this year, University College Dublin is hosting an International Global Irish Diaspora Congress from 15 to 19 August 2017, which is open to the general public to attend.

A special discount has been negotiated for affiliates of Clans of Ireland, and by using the code GICOI when registering, the attendance fee will be reduced from €200 to €100. The fee entitles a person to attend on each of the four days of the Congress, where one can select from lectures on a wide variety of diaspora related topics.

The finalised programme is available via this link, and will open in a new window where you can then download it as a PDF. Once you've done this you can zoom in and out and it will retain full clarity without pixelating.
