Mark Wetzel has kindly supplied this compilation of internet sites from which intending congress participants can gain further information about where they are going.
Information for the SIL98 Congress in Dublin, Ireland, may be accessed via the SIL98 Congress web page, at http://nis.rtc-tallaght.ie/conferences/sil98.home/sil98.html.
Additional information is available for the Congress venue, University College Dublin, and general information on Ireland is available at the following sites: The Irish Tourist Board (Bord Failte), at http://ireland.travel.ie/; The Irish Tourist Board International Office Network, athttp://www.iol.ie/~discover/itb.htm; and The Irish Times – Live on the Web at http://www.irishtimes.com/irishtimes/live/index.htm.
Perhaps the best single site for information on Ireland is An Interactive Travel Guide to the Best of Ireland, at http://www.iol.ie/~discover/welcome3.htm. This wonderful site (en Français, Deutsch, Español, Italiano, and English languages) includes information and web links to summaries of travel to and within Ireland (air, ship, rail, bus), car rental, driving, sailing, camping, culture, history, politics, passports, communication, television and radio, a daily weather map for the `British Isles’, Irish touring itineraries, castles, maps, places for tranquil escapes, sports, currency, The Blarney Stone, geneology, hotels and guest houses, and of course, the allimportant guide to fine Irish dining establishments, at http://shaw.iol.ie/~discover/restaur.htm.
These sites are well worth the visit for any person considering a trip to Ireland, whether it be for the Congress, or for holiday.
