dprjones has uploaded two videos on the AAI convention:

And
World Atheist Convention, Dublin, 3-5 June 2011

why not drop them a line to welcome them over :)

Also do we have a moblie phone number to use for the weekend, as there may be Atheists unable to attend the convention but would still like to meet up in a pub afterwards.

I'll try to get a video up, falling behind.

Hello, I'm hoping people can advise me, I've never attended an event like this before, I just happened to see it advertised on Richard Dawkins website, so I thought what the heck I might as well go to give it a try.

So I booked a ticket, but I don't know where I'm going to stay or anything, I checked the hotel website, but it seems to be booked up now. The main thing I want help with is where to stay.

I live in Northern Ireland, so I haven't decided if I'll be getting a train down or driving or what, I'll need to think about that as well.

Also, is Richard just going to be at the event on Friday? Or will he be there the entire time but only speaking on Friday?

Duo, I have found goireland to be a good website for looking for hotels and checking availability and so forth. It should do the trick for you.

Just while I was glancing I noticed Trinity College seems to let you stay there for 50 Euros a night, it's beside the hotel so I might stay there.

And also I'm really interested in knowing, is Dawkins just going to be there on Friday, or is he staying for the whole event?

With regard to accommodation, the most affordable accommodation can be found here :

or here:

Otherwise the Mont Clare is right across the street from Alexander, which is where Speakers are staying.

Thanks for the links, does nobody have any idea of how long Richard will be staying at the meeting for though?

Also I never got an email receipt or anything, where is the ticket to confirm that I'm going to the event I should have?

Pope says atheists pick & choose their morals. Correct. Today I will be frowning on child abuse & not having a problem with homosexuality.

Print out your receipt from Paypal which you received when you used Paypal to pay the ticket.

This should be enough for your needs.
