Hey.
My name is Neil I'm a (very) amateur aspiring magician who hails from Co. Mayo, I was wondering if anyone was close or someone knew someone who was close that wanted to get together for practice and support.
As far as I know the closest IBM ring is in cork and the closest SIM meeting is Dublin. I'm unable to get to these places due to lack of funds and a hectic home life (new arrival to the family) I would just like some magical friends who are close by with whom I can relate to and practice with and so I can bounce thoughts questions and ideas of someone like minded.
If you know of anyone don't hesitate to PM me.
Kind regards
Neil

Are there any online places where more Irish magicians are likely to read your message? I would imagine that Brendan would know.

Meeting other magicians face to face is the best way to learn.

I agree with you but I'm not ready to face an audition to join SIM.
I would have thought this being the prominent forum on the subject and having an international readership would be a good place to start.

Good idea though I'll Chuck him a PM to see.

Thanks.
Regards.
Neil.

Cornelius,

I shot you a PM on this. The scene out in the west of Ireland isn't all that large.

There is one guy I know of in Mayo and another in Sligo.

There is also a fairly active Facebook page for The Society of irish Magicians and friends. If you friend me on facebook I'll invite you.

Brendan

And check out IrishMagicNews for more info on the scene here.
