Dear Colleagues,

It gives us great pleasure to invite you to EANS2019, the 19th European Congress of Neurosurgery in Dublin. We offer you a Cead Mile Failte go hEirinn, or a hundred thousand welcomes to Ireland. The Dublin conference centre is centrally placed in our capital city which offers many historical, cultural and entertainment activities. There are many hotels within walking distance or a short tram or taxi ride away.

The overall scientific programme will take the familiar form that has been established over the last few years bringing together international experts to discuss and inform. To help develop best practice in all subspecialities under the headings of Technology, Techniques, Training and increasingly important Transparency. You can be sure of advancing your knowledge and renewing old contacts and making new ones.

September is the end of summer in Ireland with temperatures varying between 9°C and 17°C. It was no accident that the Romans called Ireland Hibernia (latin for winter), so you can expect some rain showers. You can be assured however of a warm welcome. Dublin has become a very popular tourist destination so it is easy to arrange additional excursions or activities as required. We would invite you to come and be educated, refreshed and entertained.

The networking evening will give you an opportunity to sample some of the best aspects of Irish music, refreshment and entertainment in a convivial multicentre space.

Yours sincerely,

Ciaran Bolger
Congress President
