The event was organized by The Fifth Province blog, the Embassy of Ireland in Budapest and the Foundation for Inter-Culture Multicultural and Intercultural Connections. The event was hosted by Kodolányi János University, Budapest.
The event was officially opened by H.E. Ronan Gargan, Ambassador to Ireland in Hungary and was followed by two very interesting and well researched papers on Irish and Hungarian connections culturally and historically (Historical Connections between Ireland and Hungary; Malevolent Creatures of Mythologies of Ireland and Hungary) This was followed by an outstanding performance by the Hungarian musical band, BRAN, who played Irish folk music.
BRAN proved yet again what a remarkable group of musicians they are. This was indeed a memorable occasion.
