Fáilte!

This group is for WOMEN who identify as LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender, or Questioning). It is a Social Club for adult women (must be over 18 years of age) who want to meet new people, develop new friendships, participate in common interest activities (the possibilities are endless), network, share resources, build 'a sense of community' and have a bit of Craic! This Club is suitable for single women & couples.

This is an inclusive group for women of all ages and backgrounds who identify as LGBTQ. We cater to different ages & interests by organising particular MeetUps that meet their needs.

We organise on & off scene Events: movie nights, book clubs, walking/hiking outings, museum visits, Mother's group, coffee MeetUps, FUNdraising events, pub nights, clubbing, theatre, meals out, dances, sports etc.  We also support LGBTQ political causes and Events in our wider Community. Events are largely based in Dublin & surrounding counties and some events are run/hosted in other locations around Ireland.

Special efforts are made to facilitate women who come to events on their own or for the first time. Arrangements are made to meet up with anyone interested before an event so you don't have to go on your own. We have all been 'Newbies' at one time or another ;) Creating a safe environment for women, is important to us.

We have 'Meeter Greeters' to meet you before an Event and also to ensure that everyone is given a warm welcome. An ethos/culture of mutual respect, courtesy, warmth, dignity, positivity and inclusivity for all members........ is expected.

We currently have over 65 Event Organizers on our Leadership Team. Event Organizers volunteer their time & energy organising exciting MeetUp Events for all members. Our MeetUps are varied and many of them are free.

Feel free to suggest any ideas you have for exciting/alternative events. Your ideas are always welcome ;) You will also have the opportunity to become an Event Host if you wish.

Over 2,550+ (yes you read that correctly) MeetUp Events have taken place so far......... and feedback has been very positive. Camaraderie between members is developing and meaningful friendships have been made.

This Club is non commercial/non-profit.  Membership is free. We have occasional FUNdraising Events to support the current & future development of Running Amach.

This is not a dating website.....'but accidents do happen" (i.e. 10+ engagements & several weddings/civil partnerships :)

'Running Amach' is a play on the phrase Running Amok. 'Amach' means 'out' in Gaelic ;)
