The 2016 IQUA Annual Field Meeting


This will take place in the Burren over the weekend of 31st September to 2nd October . We will be based in the Lady Gregory Hotel, Gort, Co. Galway.

The hotel are holding 15 rooms till the end of June at a discounted rate for IQUA members of 85 euros per night for a double room / 75 euros single, inluding breakfasts. Anyone wishing to book should ring the hotel as soon as possible and quote "the Irish Quaternary Association" or "IQUA" to avail of the discount.

Our itinerary is at an early stage of planning but we will be visiting Turlough Hill to look at the very special archaeology and landscape, probably the area around Carran and on the Sunday perhaps visiting the Fanore / Doolin coastal area. We are planning to hire a coach so as to reduce the problem of a large convoy on the narrow roads of the Burren so please let us know as soon as you can if you intend to participate as we need to know what size of coach will be needed.

Fuller details regarding costs and timetable, etc. will be posted here as soon as we fix them. Watch this space!
