    Now that we may be seeing a little nicer weather and before we all go off on holidays and the Dare team head to Dundee it might be worth thinking about dates for our pre summer shindig..

    how about Friday the 16th of the 23rd of June…?

    how about somewhere with a beer garden!

    Well I’ll be away for those dates, but if people are around perhaps a mini-shindig on friday the 9th?

    Get the whole Dare team out to meet the community. And if any of the northern team are about we could meet them too?

    Never too late for advice over a pint…..

    Well since we all can’t agree on a date for the shindig here is another attempt to get you out and about.

    I am officially launching my book in the IFI bookshop at 7pm on the 15th of June – i.e. next Thurs. The book will be launched by Prof. Paschal Preston of DCU and introduced by my current boss Dr. Sean O’Riain from NUIM.

    This is an invitation only event cause the space is small but if you would like to attend please contact me via events@gamedevelopers.ie and we will see how the nos are going.

    the book itself will be available at a 20% discount on the night and some refreshments (as always) will be provided.

    just another excuse to party..

    Have a great time and be sure to have someone take a few photos! I’ll be off to sunny Scotland in a few days.

    I get back into Northern Ireland around mid-July. A shindig after then would suit me, but can’t make one before then.
