What is Membership?
Rather than buying a ticket to attend Shamrokon, you become a member of the convention. A full membership is needed to attend the convention and to take part in all of the events that will be taking place over the course of the weekend.
Full members are able to attend all of our panels, readings, demonstrations and interviews, to name but a few things that happen over the weekend. They also have access to the dealers rooms, art show and the convention bars (please remember the legal drinking age in the Republic of Ireland is 18).
Unfortunately some events may have an additional cost due to materials required for a workshop or something similar. These will not form a large part of the programme and will be flagged well in advance.
By becoming a member in advance of the event, you will also be kept informed of what we're planning, how everything is going and the programme items you really don't want to miss!
How much does Membership Currently Cost?
€40 Attending Membership*
€30 on the Door Attending Membership for those who qualify for a concession membership.
€20 on the Door Attending Membership for those who qualify for a 21 and under membership
There will be no further price increases before the convention!
What do all of your membership types mean?
This is a full membership of Shamrokon, allowing you to join us for three days in August 2014 with nothing else to pay! You'll also receive a copy of any electronic publications we send out.
€35 between 01-Jan-2014 and 31-Jul-2014
€40 From 01-Aug-2014 & on door
If you want to support the con, but aren't sure if you'll be able to join us in August (or know for certain you can't), this is for you. We'll make sure you receive a copy of any electronic publications we send out. If you wish to upgrade to full attending membership then the price will be frozen at what it was when you first picked up a supporting membership.
€10 until 01-Aug-2014. At which point they will no longer be available.
These are the same as Normal attending memberships, except that this rate is only available to those who will be 21 or under on the weekend of the convention. Those claiming this membership category will be required to present proof of age.
€10 until 01-Aug-2014

This membership type was only available before Shamrokon won the bid to become the 2014 Eurocon. We are grateful to the people who believed in us and put their hands in their pockets before we even knew for certain the con would take place.
