    Count me in – why not make it April 1st – good for a laugh at least (and it is a Saturday). Obviously the meeting will have to be somewhere with a plentiful supply of beer. I suggest a pub 😉 – What about Dennehys on Cornmarket Street?

  2. Tom Raftery says:

    Pssst – shouldn’t someone tell Walter (Xanadb)?

  3. ryan says:

    I’m still reeling from my last botched attempt to organise something but I’ll gladly attend 🙂

  4. the saint says:

    damien your from cork. Damh i have to stop reading your blog now.

    Unless of course you admit that tipp are the better team 🙂

  5. GoPaddy says:

    I’ll come if you pay me flight!!

    Although Im not from Cork and to be honest its the only place in Ireland I havent been too but I do plan to visit when I get back home!

  6. Dave says:

    I’m in but April 1st isn’t an option for me, that’s Munster’s 1/4 final in the HC so I’ll be up with the jackeens.

  7. Branedy says:

    It would be interesting to meet. A quiet pub, gentile company, good ale.

    Why don’t I think this isn’t what everyone else wants 😉 .

  8. Rinceoir says:

    I’ll be working in Dublin around that time so I may not be down but a weekend in April would be good. I’m all for it though.

  9. Conor says:

    Count me in. Lucky I’m not Jewish or Branedy wouldn’t be happy 😉

    No worries, Walter will be told.

    Ted Ambers on the New Road in Bandon anyone? Dammit, ok, how about the only pub I’ve ever been in the city – The Long Valley? Anywhere else and I’ll need directions.

  10. Walter says:

    I’ll second the long valley suggestion (do they still do those doorstep sandwiches ?). We’re due our 2nd child around late march / early april so I’m not sure I’ll be able to attend but it sounds like a great idea.

  11. Branedy says:

    So much for spell checkers, my Genteel friends.

  12. Mr T. says:

    Well as cork is in Munster and the 1/4 of the European Cup (Rugby – Damien) is on 1st of april, that any cork Blogger that like Rugby wont attend, and the pubs will be choc o bloc.

  13. Winds says:

    Am I allowed come if I’m in Cork the relevant weekend? I know I’m not based in Cork…but it’s where I’m from… pretty please?

  14. […] A group of bloggers in Cork are arranging a meetup in April. There’s a definite community feel with the bloggers in that area. I think this is something that really needs to develop in the North of Ireland as well. […]

  15. Damien says:

    Winds, of course.

  16. Tom Raftery says:

    Well the weekend of the 1st seems to be out for some – there’s loads of time between now and March 25th – anyone got any problems with that date?

    Long Valley is fine with me too.

  17. Conor says:

    Any time works for me except weekend of Feb 24th, Easter and end of April.

  18. I propose Reidy’s on Western Road. It’s fair big enough, and quiet enough, and there’s a space outdoors at the rear if the weather’s up to it.

    Also it’s round the back of my house, but that’s just a coincidence.
