We also need to thank our local @RSIreland for the consumables that were used in many of the electronic/electrical repairs.
Lastly, we need to say thanks to all the fixers. We had both members of @TOG_Dublin and non-members helping out on the day. Without you, it would have just been an empty room. We will see you all at the next cafe in three months.
The Our Balbriggan Loves Learning festival will take place from April 19-30 and will explore a range of learning and upskilling opportunities.

The Makers is a documentary film in which a number of makers share their personal journeys as makers. Every maker has a different story to tell, a different set of circumstances, and a specific and unique personal path to where they are now. What unites them all is the satisfaction that comes of following their dreams, finding their space, realising their true passions. This film is a celebration of that and a tribute to all those who find their sense of belonging through finding themselves.
We are proud to have three of our members and our space featured.
TOG turned eleven this year and in those eleven years we have gone from strength to strength. We currently find ourselves in our third space at 22 Blackpitts in the south city centre. It has been a great home to us for these past 5 years. Our lease expires shortly and although we will be renewing, we do not know if we will have a long term lease and the building might also end up for sale.
So we are beginning our search for a new long-term home which will become TOG 4.0. We would like to find a space between the canals if possible, and ideally in the city centre. In the mean time, we continue with our visitor activities (online due to Covid 19) and TOG members can still physically access and use the space. We continue to welcome new members. So keep in touch with us and if you know of any locations which which may be of interest to us, drop us a line. Closeness to public transport is a plus, given our diverse membership and visitor profile. We might also be interested in partnering or co-locating with other organisations. We will keep you informed of any developments.
