The annual winter conference took place in An Grianán on Saturday. The conference opened in the morning with important topics about An Grianán and the ICA being discussed. This was then followed by the launch of the new book The ICA book of Tea and Company. In the afternoon we were joined by two guest speakers. The first spoke about The People’s Conversation which aims to improve Irish society. The second spoke about the changes in banking with particular insight to Bank of Ireland.
