Leprecon is the annual convention of DU Gamers and it has been running for over 30 yeas as of 2010. Leprecon was the first gaming convention in Ireland.
The first event was organized by a group led by John Munro. The group mostly consisted of students from UCD and TCD. Gamers were invited to bring their owns games for pre-Internet meet & greet. Organizers made sure to display Napoleonic games, 1/300 micro-armor, SPI games as well as D&D. The highlight, however, was a competitive D&D game in which several groups of players raced through a D&D maze, complete with sound effects. The event was covered by a Dublin newspaper.
Over the years the con has had many different locations and motifs. For many, many years the GMB in the heart of Trinity's campus was home and while the building looked great it was always too small and usually too cold. In latter years, barring one hiccup, the con has taken place in the more spaceous and modern Goldsmith Hall, just outside the eastern boundary of Trinity's official campus. This has allowed for a lot more experimentation in the area of special events and it also means that you aren't knocking over wargames every time you turn around.
 In 1987 we were on Leprecon 8. Even then, there was some dispute over whether that meant there had been eight such events or whether it had run for eight years. Since then, Leprecon has run annually.
