Im so excited!

Yes, Yes I am a big child and I am counting down to going to Dublin on Friday for TeenCampIreland on Saturday between 1 and 7pm in the FilmBase, Curved Street, Temple Bar, Dublin.

Will Knott has a great post for any who is attending a tech/blog event for the first time and I say I will be looking at that again on Friday or Saturday morning!

If anyone is looking for company on the train to or from Dublin. I am on the 19:30 to Dublin on Friday night and the 21:30 back to Cork on Saturday night!

I am hoping to meet a few people in Dublin before the event too, so it should be fun!

In other news… I got my tickets for Brussels
