Thanks for stoping by at the Irish Redhead Convention page. All the information on this page is now set for our 2014 event which took place from August 22 – 24 in Crosshaven, Co. Cork.
Our next event will be help from 21 – 23 August 2015. Everything about the convention is a celebration of red hair from the famed carrot tossing championships, to weird and wonderful competitions such as the best red eyebrows and the most freckles per square inch! The highlight of the weekend activities is the crowning of our new ginger King and Queen. But we have lots of other great activities planned such as exhibitions, informative seminars and lots more, all themed around red hair!We will update the programme of events as we make plans.
Throughout the weekend, will also be raising money and awareness for the work of the Irish Cancer Society. This national charity provides cancer care, support and research and relies entirely on voluntary donations.
