Event description

Description

This is the eighth conference on the successful IRA attack on the Custom House on May 25, 1921. It is the second to be held in the Custom House itself - and a great opportunity to see the scene of the attack itself.

Seating is limited and, in the interests of security, the Custom House has asked that we supply a list of names of all who will be attending.

There is no charge for the conference, which will begin at 10.00 am and continue until c.4.00 pm, and there will be a light lunch provided 12.30 - 2.00 pm. Talks will be given by experts on this, possibly the most successful assault on an institution of the British Adminsitration during the War of Independence, and there will be an opportunity from questions in both the morning and afternoon sessions..

Books and other ephemera relating to the burning will be on sale on the day at specially discounted prices.

Anyone with special needs who requires a parking permit within the grounds of the Custom House is requested to notify the organisers.

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The conference is not really suitable for children under 12 years of age, unless they have a particular interest in Irish history. It is likely that a child under 12 would not be entertained by this conference.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

For those with special parking needs there is parking within the Custom House grounds. To avail of this advance notification (including your car registration number) must be e-mailed to: burningofthecustomhouse@outlook.com by 23 May

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Ideally, do. Otherwise there may be a delay in admitting you if there is any reason to doubt your identity!

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

No, it is not. If you cannot attend, please email us at burningofthecustomhouse@outlook.com and we will cancel your ticket and, if required, issue a replacement to the person you wish to transfer to.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

No, it is not. If you cannot attend yourself, please email us at burningofthecustomhouse@outlook.com and we will cancel your ticket and, if required, issue a replacement to the person you wish to transfer to.
