That's GRAND, so it is!! :wink: :lol: :thumbl:

I really, really, really wish I could come !! :( Especially as, having had a poke about the website, I've just spotted these mugs which are AWESOME!! Wanna, wanna, wanna - with tea and a bikkit!! :lol: :wink:

Can I please beg, implore, entreat, inveigle, bribe, plead or otherwise persuade anyone who is going to bring me back a couple? :D :bounce: :D
I think I can pay for them via the website beforehand, but they can only be collected at the con . . . so please, please, please ? **does best cute, begging kitten impression**
**stops when realises self just looks constipated** :lol:

I have too many mugs already, but I would sooooo make room for this one! (Wretched Atlantic Ocean, gets in the way it does!)

Dammit, your merch looks quite appealing but I won't be at the convention :(

But I guess that's one of those things that we do... Con merch is kept special by limited print runs and keeping it for Con attendees only :D

'ello, 'ello,' ello, what's all this then? The Emporium have been at the Irish DW Con . . .

. . . although I'm not sure why Lance Corporal Cuddy is standing on a couple of buckets. . . must be a new campaign for Equal Heights :lol: :wink:

. . . and I see The Watch has a new member . . .

. . . and that the Nac Mac Feegles' Irish cousins, the O'Feegles were also in attendance :lol: :wink:

Love the pictures :)

This time three weeks ago everything was starting to wind down, and we all had our Onion Fairy attack to come (Seb's song was amazing). Why not walk down memory lane and give us your rose tinted or not so rosey view if you haven't yet? https://irishdiscworldcon.typeform.com/to/j8U9Ba

I don't think I've ever been prouder of anything I've ever done. My fellow committee did all of the work and my job was mostly to keep telling everyone that while getting smiles and hugs :thumbr: Thanks to all of you who made it, and for the enthusiastic comments of those who couldn't. Only about 100 weeks to go (please note dates not set) till 2017.
