Worldcon Dublin 2019 — An Irish Worldcon
15/08/2019 - 19/08/2019
The Convention Centre Dublin (CCD)
Ireland has a rich tradition of storytelling. It is a land famous for its ancient myths and legends, great playwrights, award-winning novelists, innovative comics artists, and groundbreaking illustrators. It has a well established science fiction and fantasy fandom, and active gaming scene. Celebrating Ireland’s rich cultural heritage, contemporary creators and future directions at a World Science Fiction Convention in Dublin would be an honour.
Ireland has been the home of many science fiction and fantasy writers. Historically, Bram Stoker, Lord Dunsany, Flann O’Brien and Sinéad de Valera are among our ranks, through to more recent authors such as Eoin Colfer and Kate Thompson. Anne McCaffrey and Harry Harrison have joined those who have made Ireland their home.
