The highlight of the year is the Inaugural Meeting, where the Auditor delivers a paper on a topic of their choosing, followed by a number of responses from distinguished guests. Previous years have included former US Secretary of Defence William Perry, Feminist Philosopher Judith Butler, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Not-so distinguished guests can still dress up in black-tie, gorge themselves on the lavish reception, and enjoy a night out in some of Dublin’s fanciest establishments.

This year the Inaugural will be taking place on Monday 10th October, and our Glorious Leader Ronan will be delivering a paper on “The Future of the European Union” (aka Will Britain Ever Leave??), and the keynote speaker will be David O’Sullivan, Ambassador of the European Union to the United States, and former Secretary-General of the European Commission.
