Our annual conference ("international congress") is held over a five or six day period. The host nation sets the theme for the lectures and each of the six branches provides a speaker. The lectures are usually in English, but if not, translation is provided. Each of the six branches also brings along a traditional entertainer from their country for informal entertainment and a more formal concert. Excursions and visits also form part of the Conference. For language enthusiasts there is an opportunity to hear and try out the other Celtic languages.
