Gaelcon is a gathering of the Irish gaming community organised by the IGA, a voluntary group of people drawn from that community. Therefore, acknowledging attendees as members of that community simply makes sense.
In that spirit, all membership holders will also be fully paid up IGA members going into 2024 (normal cost 5 euro). There’s no obligation to participate with that membership but you are welcome to attend our AGM at Gaelcon to find out more about what’s planned in the coming year, participate in our quarterly IGA member meetings, and be elected to IGA posts.
For bookkeeping purposes, memberships officially run from November 1st 2023 to October 30th 2024
