You are warmly invited to the 25th annual CCI European gathering: This is another “no frills” Irish CCI workshop. The event may be loosely described as CO-OPERATION, and we welcome all offers of help, both before and during the event. 

The venue is Termonfeckin, near Drogheda, County Louth, Ireland, which some of you may already know.  It is about fifty miles (eighty km) north of Dublin. We are delighted to be returning to this venue, having hosted the CCI European gatherings there in 1996, 2000 and 2005.

All the information on this site, plus nice photos and lots more is not  available anymore at 

Not sure about booking?....

If you are attracted to this but are feeling rusty or out of touch with co-counselling we would encourage you to come anyway and experience the support, freedom and encouragement that this event has to offer. The only minimum skill you need to do co-counselling is to be able to

  • give someone else your aware caring attention when it is someone else's turn to work on their distress,
  • keep to the co-counselling ground rules, and
  • decline to give an intervention (when you are counsellor) if you don't want to give it.

NB You have to be a CCI co-counsellor to come on this event.

The Venue

Termonfeckin, near Drogheda Ireland
The splendid house is called “An Grianan” or “a sunny place”, and is light, spacious and very comfortable. It is the centre of the ICA, the Irish Countrywoman’s’  Association, and it is now open as a Conference Centre. Their website gives information about it. The centre has accommodation for 85 people.

An Grianan is located by the sea, and a short invigorating walk through the lovely grounds, through the golf course and over the dunes will bring you to the strand. The beach is really wonderful - very wide and long, stretching as far as you can see.


For bookings up to 30 April 2010, the cost will be 430 euros.
For bookings after 1 May 2010 the cost will be 450 euros. 
For a single room there will be an extra charge of 60 euros.
A deposit of 100 euros will secure the place.

Payment details removed


 We will do our best to give a scholarship to those who might otherwise not be able to come.
Those who need a bursary/scholarship should contact the organisers as soon as possible.


Unfortunately it will not be possible to accommodate campers on the site.


We appreciate that for some people it is important to be able to bring their children, and it worked very well in Germany last year. We would be happy to talk to co-counsellors who want to bring children, to see if we can work together to make it happen. We would rely heavily on parents helping with a programme of activities for these children..
