To “kick-off” your evening, guests are invited to view a GAA exhibition, with the mini-museum stand set exclusively for the ECC-9 guests. Get ready to immerse yourself in the spine-tingling and completely unique story of Gaelic games from ancient times to the present day. The exhibition not only celebrates the history of Ireland’s national games, it also vividly brings to life how the GAA has contributed to our cultural, social and sporting heritage.

Pre-dinner drinks take place with a full view of the famous Croke Park pitch, dinner will follow in the Hogan Suite. Bars will serve until 11:30pm after which coach transfers will return guests to the congress hotels, or to the city centre, where delegates may continue their evening at their own leisure.
