Reported sightings of ghosts and spirits are only the tip of the iceberg as many people are afraid, ashamed, and embarrassed to come forward for fear of not being taken seriously.
For this reason, the World Ghost Convention was established to help those who have had supernatural experiences by raising public awareness, highlighting the fact that they are not alone in having such experiences. In addition, this unique international Ghost Convention provides an ideal opportunity for people to express their views on the paranormal by
giving them a platform to share their own experiences with like-minded Ghost and Spirit enthusiasts.
Admission: 20 Euro
Limited Number Of Tickets Available
Tickets Available @ Pro Musica,
Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork. Tel: (021) 4271659
Please arrive early as doors close at 8 p.m. sharp. Thank You
Established in the year 2000, the goal of this unique annual World Ghost Convention is:
To give people who have experienced supernatural occurrences the opportunity to share their own personal supernatural experiences if they so wish as well as hear firsthand the accounts of others that echo similar experiences.
To give people who are curious about the supernatural in general an opportunity to hear a variety of supernatural topics explored by speakers from different backgrounds and professions.
To get a clearer picture of the supernatural by touching upon a variety of
different aspects of the supernatural from different viewpoints.
Your host for the evening's proceedings is Kevin N. Power, M.A. H.D.E., L. Dip. (T.C.L) University College Cork.
Lord Mayor's Address

Catherine will briefly outline how the World Ghost Convention came into being.
The panel of guest speakers for the evening are:
Kathleen Mueting, Spiritual Advisor, Healer, Clairvoyant, Motivational Speaker, Author & Teacher
Have there been 'accidental' meetings in your life? Have you met someone out of the blue who gave you information you needed at the time? In a lecture entitled "Demystifying The Spirit World - Practical Applications In Our Everyday Lives", Kathleen Mueting will explore Spirit Guides and Angels who are there for us and provide examples of how these 'Invisible Helpers' work miracles in our lives.
John Collins, Psychic / Spiritualist
Drawing from his own personal history, John will speak about his everyday experiences with ghosts and outline his method of communicating with them. He will also go through the different reasons why spirits wish to communicate with us.
Dr. Margaret Humphreys
Folklore & Ethnology Department, University College Cork
In the lecture titled "Seeing is Believing?", Dr. Humphreys will outline and discuss the question of belief and disbelief in ghost stories regarding supernatural sightings from both a positive and critical perspective.

Wow, cool that it's held in Ireland!
I shalln't be attending though
Its held in Ireland every year and theres a fair few "World Conventions" held in different countries
I will now be attending this. Half day off work, hoping on an Express Train to Cork and back around lunch time on Saturday .... then the Boards.ie Halloween Beers on the Sunday obviously!
I'd be tempted to go except I'd constantly have to stifle an urge to heckle/debate them mid-lecture.
myself and the wife are going to go, make a weekend out of it. You can have a lift down if you want 6th. eitherway I dont care, cos that's how i roll.
Is it faster to drive or take the express train?
I'd say the express train,
I'm not going till the Saturday morning though (early) as there is some form of a hen night taking place that I am not invited to but nevertheless has interfered with my plans
Aren't all the talks on the Friday night though?
your point being?
There doesnt appear to be anythign great happening on the Saturday?
i'll go down on the friday night so, and hook up with herself the next day and drive home on the monday
Ok I have 3 tickets held at the door for myself, Stoner and Grimes ... who else is coming down?
I can't say for sure until I get back to Ireland. I'll let you know this weekend if I plan on attending.
