Imbolc 2011 – Smaointe den scoth i mBaile Bhuirne!

Information in Irish follows the English version.

On the 12th of February eight of the most original and innovative thinkers in Ireland gather in Ballyvourney, Co. Cork, to give a day of talks on the ground-breaking projects they are working on. The name of the conference is “Imbolc”, and perhaps the most innovative facet of the whole event is that it is taking place entirely through the medium of the Irish language. This event is a perfect antidote to the negativity and paralysis that many in Ireland feel at the moment, and our goal is to inspire and challenge the audience to push the borders in their own thinking.

It is a one-day event, with each of the eight speakers given twenty minutes to make their presentation. As the speakers come from a wide range of disciplines, including business, science, the arts, and technology, this format will give the greatest opportunity for variety and the greatest possibility for cross-pollination of ideas.
