History of the Branch
In 2013 BASPCAN approached professionals working and living in the Republic of Ireland with a view to extending the remit of BASPCAN to become a five nations association. The initial meeting chaired by Dr John Devaney (then Chair of the Board of Trustees of BASPCAN) led to a steering committee becoming established with interested professional from all parts of the country. The first event in April 2014 held at Trinity College, Dublin was well attended and has been followed by further seminars around the country.
