A few more photos from Ireland, taken by Ian Denholm over the weekend at the conference.
Ian told me "The conference went extremely well, with lots of VCRs present and a very encouraging number of youthful people. There were a few people taking photos and I'm sure their pictures will be better than mine.
"However, I'm attaching three that may be of immediate use - one of general mingling and two of the birthday party (including the cake!)".
Ah the cake... actually I hear from Maria that there were two cakes, but one was a birthday cake. Quite fitting, as the conference was intended to celebrate fifty years of BSBI in Ireland. So, Happy Birthday BSBI in Ireland, and many happy returns!
As for plaudits for the conference, here are tweets from two satisfied delegates, who were also very complimentary about the cake:
Great day yesterday with @phoebeob1 at #BSBI members conference in Dublin :)
@BSBIbotany @Rebeccabunga Best conference ever :)
And it sounds as though there may be another local BSBI group in the offing:
@murlong77 enjoyed yesterday. Got to finally put faces to names! Couldn't make it over today. I'll be in touch re Dublin group later next wk
