The Politics.ie Events forum is for the sharing (and promotion) of public events and meetings that would be of interest to Politics.ie readers and users.

This is a slightly unique forum to others for two key reasons.

1) We are welcoming the starting of threads in this forum by new members, if you're coming onto the site to promote a meeting or event, you are welcome to do so in this forum, we do hope you'll stay around and engage afterwards.

2) The posting of press releases in this forum is allowed, if the press release promotes the event, gives details of what's happening and who's speaking, that's awesome. However, press releases which are more about an argument/angle than the meeting itself will see the thread removed entirely. We don't like that, and if you do it, chances are we'll grow to not like you either. So please don't.

If you're live-streaming the event then we're in love with you, readers and users who can't attend but want to watch it online will appreciate it. Let us know, and we'll help draw the attention of Politics.ie's audience that your meeting is happening live.

If anyone has any questions they can use the contact form or email the admin team at info@politics.ie.

I genuinely hope that this forum will enrich the experience of the users and readers of the site, and allow people to become further engaged and aware of meeting and events that will enrich their understanding.

Good idea.

Anything that helps people get more actively involved in politics is always a good thing.

Let NOT start seeing SF-sponsored car-boot sales selling tee-shirts now ;) ... Only GENUINE public events count!

Just heard over on Politicalirish that COOKIEMONSTER has failed with his bluster and bluff over there too. It seems that he is no longer posting there having left there - as here - with his knickers in a twist.
He did a lot of damage on here as a MOD until people saw through is venality and devious obsessiveness with far-right anti-Irish and pro-Zionist fanaticism. Good riddance!

If I had my way you would have been banned long ago. You remain by the grace of Stringjack, as it were.
Yet another example of why Stringjack is to blame for this site going to shít.

What's this got to do with Events? This is a public events and meetings thread but I can see it hasn't been used much as it consists of only 2 pages and there have been many events since 2012, none of them mentioned here.

Just taking the opportunity to publicise this – it looks like it will be good.

A quick disclaimer: I do not work for Wordwell Books or the Office of Public Works (who are providing the venue Dublin Castle).

Archaeology Ireland one-day conference in Dublin Castle

The magazine ARCHAEOLOGY IRELAND is hosting a one-day conference on 30th September 2017 in George’s Hall, Dublin Castle.

The day will mark the 30th birthday of the magazine

“The forthcoming conference, “Answers from the ground: archaeological sites that have changed our view of Ireland’s past”, will present evidence from archaeological excavations that have taken place over the last 30 years.

All of the presentations on the day will offer new and revealing insights into
understandings of Ireland’s past.

There will be evidence from Hermitage, Co. Limerick, on Mesolithic cremation burial;
the role of Poulnabrone in changing perceptions of the early Neolithic;
the first hillforts in Ireland; Drumclay, Co. Fermanagh, which opens an unparalleled
doorway into medieval life in Ireland and contemporary lake settlements;
Raystown, Co. Meath; Trim, Co. Meath; and the archaeology of 1916

Also present on the day is Prof. Mike Parker Pearson (Institute of Archaeology, UCL)
speaking on the Stonehenge/Durrington Walls Project.”
Conference fee: €60
Concession price of €45 for magazine subscribers, students and seniors

For more information pick up a copy of the latest issue of ARCHAEOLOGY IRELAND magazine in all good bookshops and newsagents or phone the printing works Wordwell Books (01) 2933568

Early booking advised

Nice detail. Just think, if it had been fastways we might have been spared the reformation.
