Thank you thank you thank you to all the wonderful women who have responded to my request for help, I really appreciate it. 

I now have fantastic women in Dublin, Belfast and Galway interested in hosting dinners over the next few months.  If you would like a dinner in your city but aren’t comfortable with hosting / organizing it on your own, just e-mail me and let me know, we can still make it happen.

A handful of requests:

1) We are talking about doing a data-focused/citizen scientist/hacktivism dinner in Dublin.  Are you a woman who works with data or visualisations?  Are you a hacktivist?  Interested in or working on your own citizen scientist project?  We’re looking for you!  Please send any info or recommendations on women data speakers to

2) If you have other requests for topics or recommendations for speakers, please let us know by e-mailing

3) If you’re on Twitter, you can now follow us at @irelandggd!

4) We’re putting together a few side events at local conferences like FunConf.  The idea is just to give the ladies heading along to the conference a chance to meet other attendees before the event.  If you organize a tech event in Ireland or Northern Ireland, or know someone who does, let us know and we’ll try and set something up for anyone who might be interested.  It’s always nice to have some familiar faces at conferences!


We’re finalizing details now for the next Dublin event, so I hope to have that posted later on this week.
