We'll just have to celebrate it in Cork, John. So far, no need to recycle Event cities... thankfully :) .

I am looking forward so much to returning to the emerald isle, and especially to experience Cork. The event will be wonderful, plus meeting up with so many friends, but I'm also hoping to spend a few days at Dzogchen Berra on a retreat. What a magnificent area!!

Oh, you will love Dzoghchen Beara, Diana! Such an amazing place.

Delighted to hear of Cork's selection as a city of culture once again. :D

When I read about people thinking of going to Dzoghchen Beara I was reminded of Gougane Barra http://www.gouganebarra.com/ - a (small, Irish scale) former place of retreat in Co Cork.
It was here that St. Finbarr, patron saint of Cork, founded his early Christian monastery, before moving down the River Lee to establish a monastery at what is now St Finbarr's Cathedral in Cork City.


There is a green island in lone Gougane Barra,
Where Allua of songs rushes forth as an arrow;
In deep-valley'd Desmond - a thousand wild fountains
Come down to that lake from their homes in the mountains
of course you say you can't complain

The Irish organizing committee will give us more details soon; the Event has also been moved from Cork to Dublin.

That's good to know, Jarkko ~ from Cork to Dublin.
This is going to take some serious planning well ahead of time.

What happened?! After all the discussions, I'd have expected a much bigger announcement for a location change (not that I'm not happy; Dublin would definitely be easier for an almost-non-european like me to reach than Cork). It looks like this announcement passed almost completely unnoticed.

Good points, Laura.
I was surprised to see it only in Jarkko's one-line posting. Fortunately, I try to go back to where I last left off, and start reading from there.
And it seems it will eliminate one final leg of a trip. From the descriptions of 'expense' in Dublin, that will sure help financially.

Dublin sounds great... if it fits in with my annual summer(ish) visit to UK then I'll be there!

Afric is not able to arrange the Event in Cork. Our other Irish members have taken over, and will be organizing the Convention in Dublin. They will post an announcement of the Event plans after the holidays. Luckily no "official" announcement about Cork was not yet posted; this is just a change in the plans of an "Event in progress"

Ahhhh... okay. That puts it in better perspective, Jarkko.
Thanks!
