There will be an informal pub meet, or what we call locally a ‘shindig’ this coming Friday night, the 9th of October, upstairs in Nealon’s pub on Capel street in Dublin from 7pm.

Basically this is a way to get to know members and everyone is welcome, from industry veterans to academics and students.

The pub is towards the Liffey end of Capel street so quite central. Find out more about it at see

If you are new and don’t know what any of us look like pm someone via the forums and get a mobile number. See the discussion at

We hope to get there about 7pm as Leinster are playing in the Heineken Cup from 8pm (rugby!) so the pubs will get pretty packed for that.

I should have the first results of our industry survey available too!

Try to drop in, even just for ‘the one’.
