The first Irish Geek Girls dinner is taking place this Wednesday, February 27th, 2008 at 7:00pm at Odessa  (14 Dame Court, Dublin 2).

"Girl Geek Dinners are a chance for ladies in technology to get together, enjoy some nice food and drinks, and have fun meeting other women in their field.  In Ireland, we plan to rotate the dinners around the country to give more women a chance to attend and see what it’s all about."

The dinners were started in London a few years ago and have now spread throughout the UK and Europe.
