Gaming as Gaeilge


Given how much (little) attention I pay to wider events in the hackerspace, I have no idea if this has been advertised, but we host a group of dedicated Irish board gamers who would really love it if you could come in and game with them as Gaeilge.

This group meets in the hackerspace on the second Wednesday of every month from 7pm-which is incidentally this Wednesday October 9 coming.
