Itzacon Eire, more popularly known as Itzacon (though not to be confused with Itzacon, a defunct Sci Fi convention formerly held in Texas) is the premier gaming convention run by the Fantasy and Science Fiction Society (Fansci) of NUI Galway, Ireland.
Itzacon Eire was founded in 2005 by Anita Murray, then Auditor of the Society. As of 2013 it has been run for nine years successfully and looks to continue in that vein.
In 2007 it established the National Game Writers Award. This award is for Role-playing game and LARP scenario writers who have shown a continued dedication to the Irish convention scene and have produced a scenario of noted quality for Itzacon Eire.
