The Unity Conference takes place in Dublin, Ireland in mid
November. For those seeking a fine child and youth care
conference experience, a foreign break and a chance to
Christmas shop in style, this is the ticket. The chill of the
fall is forgotten over a warm bowl of Irish Stew in a 300
year old pub. The people are incredible, warm and into
fun. They will have you toe tapping, perhaps dancing and
definitely smiling in no time. Dublin is a Georgine City,
perhaps one of the finest. It displays the British Empire at
its highest point with its palace and parliament and at a low
point in that Ireland broke away from that very empire. The
story of Ireland told in its fine museum will enlighten
anyone interested in the post colonial experience
throughout the Commonwealth. Trinity University, founded
by Queen Elizabeth I has its fall convocation around this
time which adds to a must do visit to its campus. Should
you choose you can nip up to Belfast to visit the Titanic
Museum or hop over to the Giant's Causeway. Many make
this conference an annual experience and with each visit
find themselves exploring the country deeper and deeper
each time. Ireland and Unity may draw you back time and
time again. Bring a friend, stay a little longer.
