I recently joined Galway hackerspace 091labs to have a place to go to fool about with electronics and computers. I've been a member for about 4 months and so far i like it. The space is massive and is also used for woodworking, art and meditaiton, you know the usual hippy stuff.
I've done a few classes on programming, which i honestly don't know if i will continue, some LAN nights and some Linux intro nights.
If your ever in galway, be sure to drop into us, here is our card ;)
