Welcome to the Irish Redhead Convention!
The Irish Redhead Convention was established in 2010 and takes place in the beautiful village of Crosshaven, Co. Cork on the south coast of Ireland. This years event happens from August 19-21 when redheads will gather from across Ireland and the globe to celebrate everything about rare and wonderful red hair!
Coming up in March 2016, we have two very special events planned, which we hope will whet your appetite and get your excited for the real deal in August!
