We've had a few queries about the fees. AF is funding the event with nearly £3,000 voluntary income, thanks to members' fundraising, but we do need to make a small charge to cover some of the costs of venue, lunches, childcare, admin etc.

If your personal financial circumstances are such that the fees are prohibitive to you attending, please contact Rosaleen Dempsey as there may be the possibility of some assistance to enable you to attend. Telephone: (028/048) 9033 4116 Mobile: (+44) 07895740993

Accommodation

We have negotiated reduced rates at the Best Western Skylon Hotel, 10 minutes walk from the conference venue.

Breakfast is not included, but is available at €10 per person.

To get these rates, please contact Nina at the hotel, quoting "AF", on +353 (0)1 884 3900 or reservations@dublinskylonhotel.com (Please mark e-mails 'For attention of Nina').
