Harassment Policy

Shamrokon is dedicated to providing a safe, inclusive, and comfortable convention experience for everyone. Harassment of any kind, including unwelcome attention, verbal harassment, deliberate intimidation, stalking, or unwelcome physical contact - let alone physical  assault or battery - will not be tolerated.

If you are asked to leave someone alone, or are told no, your business with them is done.

  • If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Convention Committee or report the incident to Ops immediately, or as soon as you can.
  • Your reports of harassment or similar activity will be recorded and the Co-Chairs will be informed. The Convention Committee will discuss the situation internally. We will also discuss events with any relevant parties, keeping confidentiality of the complainants, and a decision will then be made on what, if any, action is to be taken.
  • Convention participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the convention at the discretion of the Convention Committee.
  • In addition to dealing with the harassment quickly and decisively ourselves, convention staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel security and/or the Gardaí, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the convention
