Mayo Association World Convention 2016 – Mayo, The Connected County

April 29, 2016 - May 1, 2016

Muintir Mhaigh Eo Atha Cliath, 2016 World Convention is scheduled to take place from the 29th April to the 1st May at the Broadhaven Bay Hotel, Belmullet. This event which is hosted every two years by one of the Mayo Associations globally provides  the network of Associations scattered across the globe an opportunity to connect, network  and strengthen ties  with each other. The convention will ensure the Associations continue to remain strong, vibrant and purposeful at a time when more and more Mayo people are emigrating and building roots away from their home county and in need of support from the Mayo diaspora.

The theme of this year’s Convention is “Mayo The Connected County “.

The convention which will be officially opened by representatives of Mayo County Council on the Friday evening at Aras Inis Gluaire, Belmullet. The convention will incorporate several sessions over the weekend covering a diverse range of themes such as sustaining jobs, growth and investment in Mayo, Mayo – heartbeat of the Wild Atlantic Way, Global Mayo and  Mayo Day initiatives, Mayo – a superior quality of life,

A range moderators to facilitate each session from different walks of life will support the speakers at the Convention. Key-note speakers who are connected in some way to the topics of discussion under the various themes will have the support of a panel to lead discussions on the topics at hand. The highlight of the convention will be the gala banquet taking place on the Saturday night in the Broadhaven Bay hotel. The banquet dinner is a black tie event and it promises to be a fantastic occasion for Mayos to mingle, socialise and dance until the early hours with musical entertainment being provided by The Brose Walsh Band.

The committee’s longstanding member Fr Gerry French will say Mass on the Sunday with brunch to follow prior to the convention coming to an end.
