While the Organising Committee will make every effort to ensure the safety and well being of all participants, it cannot accept responsibility for any personal accident or loss or damage to private property of participants and accompanying guests, which may occur either during or indirectly arising from the Conference. We recommend that delegates from EU member states carry a completed E-111 form for any emergency medical treatment. Other delegates should consult their travel agents about insurance.

Currency and Banking

The currency in Ireland is the Punt (Irish Pound) which is linked to the Euro exchange rate. Banks are open from 10.00 – 16.00 Tuesday to Friday and until 17.00 on Monday. There are few outlets for foreign exchange in Cork at weekends so bring enough Punts to enjoy yourself on Saturday evening!

The currency in the UK is the Pound Sterling.

An inter-university conference supported by the Department of Ancient Classics, UCC, and the Department of Classics, UWL.
