Gaelcon

Gaelcon, Ireland's premier games convention, returns to the Ballsbridge Inn (D4 Hotels)** this coming bank holiday weekend for 3.5 days of board games, war games, role-play games, and card games with trade stands and industry guests.  Many of the day events are child-friendly and parents can accompany them.  Evening activities include the annual table quiz and charity auction with the money going to selected children's charities.  Their website has all the details of the jam-packed schedule.  Tickets range from €7 a day per child to €28 for a full weekend adult ticket.  I've been to this event more times than I care to admit, even taking "recovery" days off work and it's always good fun.  I'm sure this year won't be any different.

**Due to the unprecedented weather last night, the Ballsbridge Inn is flooded and closed.  Gaelcon has been moved to the concert hall part of the RDS, on the corner of Anglesea Rd and Merrion Rd.   It's not up on the website yet but apparently it's not a joke.  I'll keep an eye on their twitter feed for any further information.
