April 2023[edit]

Hi, folks! I am Renvoy, Wikimedian from Ukraine, and in the first days of April (until 4th), I will be visiting Ireland. It would be nice to meet with some local Wikimedians, so if anyone is interested in organising a meet-up on these dates, I would really appreciate it. We can just talk about global and local Wikimedia stuff or just chat about whatever comes to mind. I will spend most of my time in Dublin, so I think it is the most optimal place to do a meet-up there. Hope to see some of you in person.--Renvoy (talk) 11:39, 20 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @Renvoy, thanks for the suggestion! A good way to connect with those of us on the same mission. I have an academic article to finish next week, so I wouldn't have time to meet up for anything more than an hour if others were there to keep things going, and I can't really make a firm commitment. Anyone else around though? Iveagh Gardens (talk) 09:20, 31 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Iveagh Gardens Sorry for late response. It seems like nobody else is up for meeting. If you have time, tomorrow or tonight at any hour for quick chat, please let me know through DM :) Renvoy (talk) 16:02, 1 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Renvoy great to hear from you! Unfortunately I am preparing to move house at the moment, so don't have the free time to meet up - I'm very sorry to miss your visit here. As you may have noticed we have not had a physical meet-up for a long time as the editing community in Ireland is small and geographically spread out :) Hope you enjoy your stay!

December 3, 2010[edit]

When: 7:00pm, Friday, 3 December, 2010
Where: O'Connell's pub, 29 Sth. Richmond St., Dublin (near Portobello Bridge, LUAS stop Charlemont)

An informal meet-up is planned for this evening, starting in O'Connell's, which is quiet at this time and conducive to chatting. There is no set agenda, but if anyone would like to discuss any particular topic(s) they would be more than welcome.

Any Wikipedians (and friends) attending can avail of free entrance to a fund-raising concert for Haiti, headlined by Niamh Parsons, a few doors up in the Portobello Hotel, from 9:00 pm, and the nite-club later on.

There are at least half-a-dozen restaurants on Richmond St., and twice as many on the other side of the bridge, in case anyone gets the munchies.

If anyone has any questions, or would like to play or sing at the concert, please feel free to contact Hohenloh +

  • Sounds great Hohenloh. Count me in. If any 'regular' intends travelling from outside Dublin for this and needs a 'billet', drop me a line at my TP and I'll see if I can help out RashersTierney (talk) 14:54, 4 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Count me in as well, Hohenloh. I'll spare you my singing voice but I'll bring a kazoo along just in case a string breaks on your guitar :-) --RA (talk) 13:59, 6 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Give my best to O'Connell's and have a great evening. Too little notice and too far to travel unfortunately ... Fmph (talk) 12:20, 1 December 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

September 25, 2010[edit]

When: 2:00pm, 25th September, 2010
Where: Kingston Hotel, Dún Laoghaire

A meet up is planned for the Dún Laoghaire on September 25th. The plan as as follows:

Ask at reception for the Wikipedia meet up. If you can't find the Kingston Hotel, Clem McGann will wait at the steeple of the Mariners' Church (the National Maritime Museum), which is close by but visible from around the town and bring you along to the hotel.

Dún Laoghaire has easy connections to Dublin city centre by bus and DART as well as mainline rail so it should be reasonably accessible to all.
