A big thanks also to Gigi Hickey and Mary Wickersham behind the scenes, and to Thomas MacEntee and Dave Miller for hosting the proceedings and keeping things moving along!
The conference is still cracking on, with plenty more chat sessions to be held in the next few weeks with other speakers, and many presentations available for watching at your convenience - full details are available at www.celtic-connections.org. I've already watched some of my fellow presenters' presentations, and there is some excellent stuff there for Irish and Scottish research!
