Do you have kids or expecting? This is my first pregnancy and I dont have any pregnant friend. It would be nice to chat with somebody who is like me smile.
I am not Irish so dont know that many people anyway.


Couldn't resist when I saw Kerry in the namegrin although there's lots of Kerry in my blood. Revenge for years of being called a Jackeen!

So it turns out there's a load of us. Hope you're all going to use your votes in the referendum, don't care which way you vote just hate to see good votes being wasted. Hang on I'm starting to sound like my mother.

Hi everyone!

Ilikecakesdublin Sat 24-Nov-12 17:44:20

Hello all!

Just moved to South Dublin from the UK four weeks ago. Settling in with our two boys (aged 1 and 2) nicely, but finding it difficult to find much to do with them - and therefore to meet many other mummies! Not working yet either which is making me feel pretty isolated, compared to where we lived in the UK where I met loads of people through playgroups, mothers-and-toddler activities etc.

Any ideas for stuff to do (aside from Zoo, swimming, Imaginosity-all of which are fab but have been done to death already in just four weeks!!)?

Thanks in advance! Xx

We would very much like to get Mumsnet Local going in the Republic of Ireland. What we need is Local Editors to kick things off. It's a bit more work than being a Tsarina (Local Volunteer of old), but Local Editors do get to keep some local advertising revenue. If you or any of your friends might be interested, do email me on and I'll send you a detailed role description. For a quick glance at how the Local sites look once they are up and running, see (no www)
All the best,

Emma, did you ever get any takers for helping get the RoI local site off the ground?

TimeMachine Sun 21-Apr-13 16:23:15

I am Irish from Dublin. Living in England for the last two years. Doing everything in my power to move back home.
