The Aine O’Shea Memorial Feis and Ball, which were launched in late 2018, and scheduled to take place on the weekend of March 16th and 17th 2019 have now been postponed. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have been unable to proceed on that date. The Aine O’Shea Memorial Feis will now take place in Citywest Hotel and Conference Centre on October 26th and 27th 2019, with the Aine O'Shea Memorial Ball now taking place in the Citywest Suite on October 26th 2019. People who have made reservations at Citywest Hotel should call Reservations Department at the hotel, and make new reservations. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this change.
We have received a number of enquiries in regards to accommodation for the World Championships in Greensboro.
It would appear that some people may have booked partnership hotels but not within the CLRG block being held at that hotel by An Coimisiún. PLEASE NOTE that as such rooms are out with the official block, access to the Championships will incur a $100 facility fee per person per day. This applies to everyone, including registered teachers and adjudicators and will be strictly adhered to. Please ensure that you have made any bookings via the official route.
On reviewing availability at the three main hotels, there are still rooms available as follows:
Sheraton Saturday 13th – Monday 15th and Friday 19th – Sunday 21st
Grandover Saturday 13th – Sunday 21st
Holiday Inn Saturday 13th – Monday 15th and Friday 19th – Sunday 21st
Over and above these three main hotels, there is still availability at most of the other hotels.
An Coimisiún will be reviewing the uptake of rooms on Monday, 14th January 2019. A decision will be taken then to release some block rooms back to the various hotels.
We would strongly recommend that to avoid the possibility of incurring the daily facility fee, all patrons secure their accommodation by close of business on 14th January 2019. Once the rooms have been released back to the various hotels for general sale we will not be able to add back to the official block.
