For those who attended last week's hugely successful CIGRE Symposium in Trinity College Dublin, one of the abiding memories of the week was undoubtedly the performance of the famous Anuna Choir at the Gala Dinner in The Mansion House. In addition, the iconic surroundings of Trinity College provided a wonderful backdrop for a week of knowledge sharing at the symposium. The week concluded with a technical visit to Eirgrid's facilities in Ballsbridge.
Delegates from 29 countries attended the 14th Congress of the European Forum for Research in Rehabilitation which took place in Glasgow Caledonian University from 22-24 May. Glorious sunshine greeted the delegates upon their arrival and thankfully stayed until most departed on Saturday afternoon. A Welcome Reception took place in GCU on the first evening of the Congress and the big treat of the week for those who attended was a spectacular Gala Dinner in Glasgow City Chambers which was followed by a traditional Scottish ceilidh.
