A mate of mine attended this last Saturday for the first time and there were about 10 people in attendance.
He said maybe 30 people attended the first one and possibly the rugby played a role in the smaller numbers this time out.
They met in some Georgian building on Parnell Square; The Teacher's Club. I'm not sure who organised it. But, there was some guy who works for RTE was also in attendance just as a passing interest and used to work on the Beat Box. He is trying to come up with a pitch for funding from RTE for some sort of programme on Irish music. I think there was also a guy there that worked on the protection and royalty side of the business.
I haven't followed this thread all the way throughout so i don't know if you guys are looking for a smaller more personal group but thought I'd mention it to ye anyway.
I'd love to go in but live in Ratoath. Might get the finger out at some stage and make the trek though. My mate will probably be going again.
Edit: Just read my own link there. There's a €2 donation for the use of the venue.
The next meeting is on Saturday 19th May from 2pm - 5pm at The Teachers Club, 36 Parnell Square West, Dublin 1.
