I definitely need to introduce myself here so here is my bio: My name is Scott Wilson! I am a trained 3D artist & game designer and have worked on several indie titles in the past and have began a startup company called Binary Pie Games http://www.binarypiegames.com. You can also find me on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/Pixel_Maniac
I have ranked up a level as I am now a lecturer with Cenit College (formerly known as Clane College.) I am teaching my second full time Game Design course under the ‘Momentum scheme’ which trains people who have been on job seekers for a year or more.
Here is a show reel I prepared containing some fantastic student work who came into the course with no previous experience. Feel free to check it out.
So we are currently half way through this course however we are about to start offering night time "introductory level" courses in 2D Game Development and 3D Game art (Taught by myself). If anyone is interested in attending or just want some more information please don’t hesitate to PM me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are based above the Tescos in Naas, Co.Kildare in a lovely new office space shared with Pitman Training.
We also have a facebook group which would be fantastic if you had a gander at:https://www.facebook.com/GameDesignIreland
Last thing I want to mention is that I am going to host my first ever Games Jam and I will let you know when that is very soon (Just sorting some bits and bobs out) and maybe get some advice from people here. Anyone is welcome to attend :)
So really folks I just wanted to introduce myself as I am still relatively new here and let you know who I am :)
Thank you very much for reading this essay… I mean… thread and hope to hear back from you :)

Thank you :)
Well the main office was in Clane but has moved to Maynooth. The offices that the game design courses run are in Naas though.
We also have courses across the country like Limerick, Galway and Cork. The name change happened officially about a week ago so sorry for the confusion.
I will send the updates to that email address.
Thank you very much :)

WOW I’m really impressed and surprised it’s in Naas. I’m originally from Naas and would have loved a course like this existing whilst I was there. Next Naas needs a games company so I can move home :)
Is there much of an uptake in the area ? When I was around I knew very few people who desired to work in games/animation or a similar industry.
Best of luck with the course Scott I hope it does well.

Many thanks for the kind words. There are a lot of people interested and I have some fantastic students! I am hoping/pushing for at least one startup company! – That would be great :)
