Irish Quaternary Association awarded the XX INQUA Congress

Dear QRA member

I am delighted to announce that the Irish Quaternary Association ( have been formally awarded the XX INQUA Congress by INQUA’s International Council and the Congress Delegates at the closing General Assembly of the Nagoya Congress and that the next Congress will be held in Dublin, Ireland between 25th-31st July 2019.

The UK supported the bid through the QRA and the existing links between IQUA and the QRA will become even stronger as the Local Organising Committee in Dublin will welcome ideas and suggestions from QRA members (e.g. field excursions/ sessions etc).

The Bidding process is a very difficult one that has required a professional approach and we would like to congratulate the Irish bidders for their outstanding work. The full bid is available on dropbox for you to see at :

The IQUA website will contain updates as the next Congress preparation evolves.

with every best wish


Pete Coxon

QRA President
