Perhaps IIU, or some of its people are interested in setting up a local
ISOC chapter? There is no operational Irish chapter at the moment (Alex
Gogan made a stab at setting on up a few years ago). ISOC carries much
international weight, and Ireland is one of the few civilized countries not
to have a chapter.
An ISOC UK rep will be in Dublin in a couple of weeks if anyone's
interested in meeting him to discuss.
