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 2015 it has been run for eleven years successfully and looks to continue in that vein into its second decade.
In 2007 it established the National Game Writers Award. This award is for Role-playing game and LARP writers who have shown a continued dedication to the Irish convention scene and have produced material of noted quality for Itzacon Eire.
