National University of Ireland
IVM is delighted to have been able to secure the facilities of NUI Maynooth for the 2009 Summer Course. Maynooth is the home of the most famous seminary in Ireland as well as a college of the National University. It is the second oldest university in Ireland and stands in beautiful, historic surroundings. The accommodation and catering facilities are first class, as are the facilities of the Music Department. Both the Conference Management Team and the Music Department have shown great enthusiasm for the idea of us coming to Maynooth and this has been vital in making it possible. We are confident that it will be a most fruitful collaboration.
