Dublin Skeptics in the Pub March 12th

Our next SITP will take place at 6:30pm til late on Saturday 12th March 2011 in the Lord Edward, Dame Street Dublin.

Some of things that will be discussed: The new government, 1023 Campaign and QED, the upcoming Atheist Conference in Dublin this summer, possibilities of further talks/events, what kind of events would you guys be interested in, and anything else that is weighing on your mind.

Hope to see you there for a drink and a plate of chips!
