2020 International Convention (Ireland I)

CANCELLED due to Coronavirus Pandemic and
RESCHEDULED to 2021 - Please see the 2021 International Convention Page

From Ireland I:


. . . "the 2020 Convention in Ireland has been postponed until 2021. This is a result of the World Wide Covid 19 pandemic. The International Board of Directors decided on last Saturday (March 21st) to postpone the International Convention in Ireland until Sunday June 13th 2021. Ireland 1 wish to apologise to everybody who had made plans to visit us this year, but these events are totally outside any-bodies control.


Convention Dates Sunday 13th to Friday 18th June 2021
Preconvention Coach Tour 8th – 13th June 2021
Preconvention Bike Tour 8th – 13th June 2021
Postconvention Coach Tour 18th – 23rd June 2021


What this means in practical terms:


Accommodation & Registration for the Convention

All bookings, both convention and registration may at your request be moved to the new dates next year. Or, you may apply for a refund.


Pre & Post Convention dates

These will remain the same as planned for this year, again you may roll over your booking, or, apply for a refund.


Ferry bookings

For those who have booked ferries through Celtic Horizon Tours, these have now been released. You can leave your payment with Celtic Horizon Tours as a credit towards next year, or, again you can apply for refund. Clearly we do not know what the ferry rates are for next year at this moment.


Flight reservations

While we cannot intercede with the airlines regarding individual bookings, most airlines are currently allowing travel to be postponed for 12 months. This was one of the main reasons next year's Convention was rescheduled to June 13th, to keep it with the 12 months.


M/cycle Hire

We have spoken with Celtic Rider & Lemonrock and they are both happy to roll over bookings until next year. You do need to contact these companies directly to make these arrangements or to apply for a refund. Retro-hire Adare are not open on Mondays so we cannot establish their position.

Once again can we apologise for this disruption and ask that you only contact Celtic Horizon Tours by email. Please contact Celtic Horizon Tours by email only, and be patient if you do not get an immediate response as you can appreciate the office is snowed under at present.


If you have any other queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,


Anne-Marie Carroll
