Regular readers of my blog will know that I’m an enthusiast for Shamrock in the Bush, held annually at St Clement’s Retreat Centre, Galong, about two hours west of Canberra. It’s not a traditional family history conference but if you have an interest in all things Irish you will be bound to have a great time. The weekend is full of great talks, great music and wonderful camaraderie. This is a conference like no other I’ve been to, which is why I trek nearly 4000kms to attend.
This year’s program has just been released and you can see it here. There are limited places, and registration is always competitive, so if you’re interested you need to move quickly.
Shamrock 2012 is being held from Thursday 2 August to Sunday 5 August. I for one am really looking forward to it. Oh, and if you go, make sure you pack your woollies because it gets very cold outside though the rooms are delightfully warm.
