Information about NEARIMeet 28 September 2019

NEARIMeet will take place on Saturday September 28 from 10.30 to 2.30 in the Education Building, Nun’s Island, Galway.

Because Féilte is running alongside NEARIMeet, we appreciate that people may need to move between NEARIMeet and Féilte. We welcome and encourage such movement between events and will facilitate those who need to arrive late or leave early etc to the best of our ability.
