Ireland has a rich tradition of story-telling, from ancient myths and legends told by word of mouth through the generations to the dark Gothic writers, from some of the greatest authors in the English language like James Joyce, George Bernard Shaw, Brendan Behan, and Sean O’Casey to works of contemporary fiction including modern science fiction, fantasy, and horror.

Celebrating that rich history while considering topics of the day and looking to the future is something that we would like to do at a World Science Fiction Convention in Dublin, Ireland.

The plan is to launch a bid in 2014 at Loncon 3 and Shamrokon, and then fight to host the Worldcon in 2019.
