Fighting Games in Ireland


#1

Ola.

Right I’ve set up a facebook group thing, for Irish fighting game meetups (super generic I know)
The aim is to keep people informed and to inform new (probably more casual) people about The Irish fighting game scene North and South. And East. And West.

So If your an Irish fighting game fan who’s a bit lonely and looking for heads to bust check it.

Anywho here’s the link:
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=106506842542

This might be handy for those who don’t post on forums much, or don’t check regularly as you’ll get an email about any upcoming events.

If you are looking for the forum where Republic of Ireland players post:
http://boards.ie/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=1204

You’ll find plenty of Irish gamertags to add there

For northern Irish players:

Though of course Feel free to go the boards.ie site too.

Anywho hope that this is of some interest to any random irish people floating on by.
Peace

Currently Casual meet ups happen in Dublin at a rate of about 1 a week
Each Saturday from 2 - 6pm @ The Xtreme Gaming Centre on Lower Liffey Street

I’ll Try keep this thread updated with whats going on; The next meet up, any changes, forthcoming tournaments etc etc.

Generally the price is ?5 and Pints are often had afterwards.
Well I always do anyway.

Here is it on a map

From Busaras (the Central Bustation of Dublin) It is a 5-10 minute walk towards and past Liberty Hall (tallest building) and down by the Quays till you get to the Ha’penny Bridge.

The Nearest LUAS Stop is Jervis

From the Connelly Train station Take Talbot street until you reach O Connel Street and head south to reach the quays. Follow the Quays east until you hit the ha’penny bridge and its down a side street to your right.

This is the bridge. From this Angle The Xgc Centre would be on the Left hand side.

If you ever happen to be in dublin and fancy some games, some of the people from boards.ie will probably meet up with you regardless of the day of the week it is.
They are a friendly lot.

Right I hope this Helps someone out. Especially if it is handy to people on holidays in Ireland.

Currently the Next Meet up will be on Saturday Sep 12th from 2- 6pm.

Almost Every Saturday between 2 and 6pm, there is a street fighter session in the XGC.
Directions are above.
Just enter the shop and head to the back and go up the stairs, the street fighter players will immediately be obvious and will help you out.

This wednesday the 17th and hopefully following wednesdays, the SF players will be there also.

This Saturday the 20th for a change a session is being held in Co.meath in Dunboyne, Information is available on the facebook group and on the boards.ie forum.

If you can’t make any of those, I suggest you join boards.ie and post a message in our section (linked below) Some of the dublin (or maybe even sligo) based players may be able to meet up with you.

Glad you Got some games in the end, despite the awkward timing. The players here are always willing to accomadate. I don’t live in Dublin myself unfortunatly.
