Speakers' Reception (by invitation)
18/05/2014 19:30-21:00
Mansion House
This is an exclusive event organised for Speakers and Session chairs. The event is the perfect opportunity for the speakers to meet their session chairs and discuss their presentations as well as meet with former colleagues and make new contacts.

This is a reception and does not replace dinner. Little snacks and drinks will be served and the location allows to easily access nearby restaurants at walking distance afterwards.

The Mansion House is the official residence of Dublin’s first citizen, the Lord Mayor. It has been at the heart of city government since 1715 and was the venue of the first ever‚ ‘Dail Eireann’ (Irish Parliament) meeting. The Oak Room was designed almost 300 years ago for civic receptions, it is still used for this purpose today. The room contains a number of fine portraits including that of Charles Stewart Parnell, founder of the Home Rule Party. Also on show here are individual coat-of-arms of Dublin’s Lord Mayors, each of whom adds his or her own at the end of their term of office.
