Brick Féile is fast approaching

Hi all
This is a quick reminder that Brick Feile, Ireland's premier event for LEGO fans returns this weekend on 16 and 17 July to CityNorth Hotel which is 15 minutes from Dublin airport.

We will have the largest number of LEGO model exhibitors of any Irish event this year and will debut the new moonbase and theme park group projects also. The Fairy Bricks mosaic and giant brick pits will be back while the Emerald Garrison troops will keep us all in check. We will have competitions including a special one for adult fans interested in seeing more of the new LEGO store coming to Dublin. Brick.ie members will also be able to participate in a special 90th anniversary build at the event.

For ticket information check out Brick feile at eventbrite.

Brick Féile event launched

Dear brick.ie member

This is just a short note to advise that our flagship LEGO event Brick Féile returns to Citynorth hotel near Dublin airport on 16 and 17 July 2022, in aid of the charity Fairy Bricks which donates thousands of LEGO sets to Irish hospitals each year. In addition to featuring more Irish and international LEGO builders than ever before, we will welcome back the Fairy Bricks mosaic building challenge and Ireland's largest brick pits. If you were not at our previous Brick Féile event you can check out what it is like on our brick féile Facebook page.

Brick Féile is approaching

Dear Member

Ireland's premier show for Irish LEGO® fans, Brick Féile is coming to CityNorth Hotel this 13 and 14 July. It is organised by brick.ie and on display will be some of the most fantastic LEGO® creations ever assembled at an Irish event. The event is in support of the charity Fairy Bricks which last year donated and delivered over £40,000 of LEGO® sets to Irish hospitals with further deliveries planned this autumn.

As it is brick.ie's 10th anniversary, we have plenty of surprises in store at Brick Féile including international model builders. All our Irish and international master-builders will be on hand to chat with you and divulge their latest tips and techniques.

We know everyone likes to get their hands on bricks. At Brick Féile we will have Ireland's largest brick pits where the little ones (and maybe the bigger children) can get stuck into our play areas to show off their building skills including an amazing Duplo® brick pit.

Our only Dublin display of the year - now on at Blackrock college

Just a reminder to all members that our only Dublin exhibition this year is currently taking place at Blackrock College, Dublin as part of the South Dublin Model Railway Club Exhibition. Opening hours are 11-5pm this Sunday and bank holiday Monday. We would love to see as many members as possible there and be sure to introduce yourself.

Calling all Cork members - anyone interested in a Cork meeting?

With the dust barely settled following a busy June when we exhibited models at both the Kildare County Show and Titanic Belfast we are already looking at next year. Some of our Cork based members have suggested in the past that we should have a meeting in Cork. As the option of doing an event in 2015 in Cork has presented itself we'd like to explore the possibility of holding a first meeting in Cork later this year so that Munster members can become acquainted with each other. If any Cork-based members are interested in attending an informal gathering in Cork to discuss all things LEGO and maybe the builders among you, your latest creations, please check out the events section of the brick.ie forum.

Brick.ie Monthly Meeting, Saturday 19th November

Hi everyone,

Sorry about the late notice, but your webmaster was struck down by a tooth abscess, and forgot all the things he was supposed to do.

The monthly meeting of Brick.ie will take place in Jack Nealon's tomorrow, Saturday 18th, from about 1pm. In addition to the usual general LEGO chat over lunch, while showing off the occasional MOC, this month we will have a presentation on a new website to be launched by LEGO next year.

Hope to see lots of you there.

The Brick.ie team.

Brick.ie Monthly Meeting, Saturday 15th October

Hi there,

This month's meeting of adult fans of LEGO takes place in Jack Nealon's pub, 165 Capel Street, Dublin 1, this Saturday the 15th October from 1pm.

It's an informal affair, so please pop along for a chat, or if you like, show off your latest LEGO creation. Later on, we'll probably wander around the corner to see what LEGO is on offer in the toy shops on Jervis Street.

Also coming up soon is the South Dublin Model Train Show, which takes place in Blackrock College on the bank holiday weekend (29th-31st Oct). A group of us have been putting together a LEGO train display, featuring David Fennel's amazing model of Heuston Station as its centrepiece, so please come along and see us, and let us know you're part of Brick.ie.

I hope we'll see you on Saturday.

James

Brick.ie monthly meeting this Saturday

Hi there,

You are receiving this email because you are on the mailing list for Brick.ie, the Irish association for adult fans of LEGO. If you don't think you should be receiving it, it's possible someone signed you up without telling you. Please follow the instructions at the bottom of the page, or just let us know and well remove you.

For the last few months, we have been monthly meetings on the third Saturday of the month, and this month is no exception. We're meeting in Jack Nealon's pub on Capel Street, close to the Liffey at 1pm.

We'll talk about Lego, show off a few models, and maybe even have a few prizes.

This month we are also working on plans for a group train layout at the Dun Laoghaire model railway show in August.
