Last call for Ancestral Connections Summer School
University College Cork's Genealogy Summer School – Ancestral Connections - Names, Places and Spaces – will get underway in just 11 days time, so if you were thinking about attending, now is the time to stop procrastinating and grab one of the remaining spaces.

The seven-day 'school' covers all aspects of Irish family history research, with in-depth tutoring from some of Ireland's best-known genealogists, historians and experts. It gets underway on the evening of Sunday 29 June and ends on Saturday/Sunday 5/6 July.

While classes take place over five days, it's not all work. A number of field trips and excursions are included to locations in Cork's Kinsale, Youghal and the City itself, plus Dungarvan in Co. Waterford.

You can view the full timetable, and book, here.

Residential bookings have now closed but there are still some spaces left for non-residential delegates, who can book either the full course (€575/€488.75 concessions*) or opt to attend on days of their choice (€95/€80.75 concessions*).

I'm told by UCC's co-ordinating team that while all campus residential bookings are now closed, they can help you locate good local accommodation at sensible rates.

*Concessions = History and culture groups, students, Over 55s, retired.
