Some members of the Cornwall Branch attended the 2018 International Celtic Congress held in Kemper (Quimper).  Interesting talks were held on the theme of Social Media.  Visits during the week were to the Locmaria part of the city and we had a guided tour of the Faience Pottery Museum. We also visited Landevennec Abbey and Museum and looked around a rebuilt windmill.
