Irish Nerdfighters/Gatherings

LukeLuke Resident Spam CleanerDublinPosts: 7,877 Admin
At the moment there haven't been many Irish Nerdfighter gatherings for a while, so I thought I'd start this thread for the Irish nerdfighters to meet each other, chat among each other etc etc. 

I'm aware that there is a Facebook group, but for reasons I won't go into in public I'm currently unable to join said group..hence this forum post. I've always found forums better anyway as they reduce the chance of things becoming focused and revolving around one small group within a larger group.
 
So to introduce myself, I'm Luke (obviously) and I live in Dublin where I'm studying Multimedia in DCU. That's all I'll say for now as I don't want to make this post too long

So where abouts in Ireland you from? What's your name etc etc?

    Heyy I'm Katie, living down in Kerry and going to college at IT Tralee but I'm in Dublin every couple of months to see friends and stuff so a Nerdfighter meet up at some point would be a+ :)

    Hey, I'm Stefan. I'm a fifth year in Castleknock College, Dublin, so a Dublin gathering would suit me fine :D

    Hey, I'm Lara :), I'm a second year and I live in the south of Dublin. I'm new(ish) as well so I'm looking forward to future gatherings 'cause I've never been to one before :D
  • Is there anyone from the Dublin 15 area?

    I'll see what I can do about organising one. The problem is that we're in winter now so gatherings don't really tend to happen

    Hi I'm David, been a nerdfighter since 2008. I live in south Dublin, but I've never met another nerdfighter in Ireland at least (met one in Chicago). If there's a gathering going on, I'd be well up for it.

    Hi everyone :) I'm Sarah from Dublin. I'm in third year and I've been a nerdfighter for about a year now.

    I'd love to make some nerdfighter friends so I just thought I'd say hi :)

  • LukeLuke Resident Spam Cleaner DublinPosts: 7,877 Admin
    @aoifbuscus where you going to college?(if you don't mind me asking)

    @grindeldore Hey, nice to (kinda) meet you :)
  • aoifbuscusaoifbuscus Posts: 81
    @Luke I go to DIT :)
  • LukeLuke Resident Spam Cleaner DublinPosts: 7,877 Admin
    @aoifbuscus What course? I considered going to DIT but didn't think the best course for me was there. It's a pretty good college though, or so I've heard anyway
  • aoifbuscusaoifbuscus Posts: 81
    @Luke I'm doing Biomedical Science. If your course was in Kevin Street, be thankful you didn't go. I'm not sure about the other campuses, but Aungier Street is 'pretty good'...Kevin Street is not. T_T
  • LukeLuke Resident Spam Cleaner DublinPosts: 7,877 Admin
    @aoifbuscus TV and film Production..I dunno where that is. I'm happy enough with what I ended up in anyway :) Biomedical Science sounds really impressive...and confusing :P

    @Luke Not sure, sounds like it could be in Aungier Street. What did you end up doing in the end? Haha yeah it's really hard, especially this year. Next week I have 3 exams, a group and individual project to hand up, and a presentation to do. That's college life <3

    @aoifbuscus Multimedia in DCU. No exams, few projects. Have to do a presentation on religion tomorrow for the oh-so-unnecessary module that is Social studies :P Finished a group project and a solo project already

    Good luck on your exams. Doubt you'll need it though

    And oh shush, you pointed out the not-so-great parts but you really do love college life! :p
  • aoifbuscusaoifbuscus Posts: 81
    @Luke Sounds cool. Yeah I definitely need that luck on those exams. Thankfully after next week I only have one other exam to do, then I'm freeeeee. Oh wait, I have 6 exams to study for in January. Never mind.

    ...

    But I do love college really :P 
  • LukeLuke Resident Spam Cleaner DublinPosts: 7,877 Admin

  • aoifbuscusaoifbuscus Posts: 81
    @Luke well that's just depressing!!! For me of course! Well at least next year I'm on placement so I have no exams :) are you in first year yeah?

  • LukeLuke Resident Spam Cleaner DublinPosts: 7,877 Admin
    @aoifbuscus Don't think less of me :p
  • aoifbuscusaoifbuscus Posts: 81
    @Luke I would never, haha. Anyways I'm going to bed early tonight, trying to get a good night sleep for once in my college life :P 
  • LukeLuke Resident Spam Cleaner DublinPosts: 7,877 Admin
