There is now an informal club Facebook Messenger group. This is so members can:

1) arrange to meet in Dublin so they can carpool/get the bus together to events listed on the "Outings" page of the website 

2) tell each other when they are heading out to take photographs themselves to ask if anyone else wants to come,

3) ask each other questions about photography,

4) any other communication members would like to engage in outside of the club's face-to-face sessions/events.

It's run by Dominic, so don't forget to drop This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. a quick email to join.

Please note that any event planned or organised through this Messenger Group is not an Official DCC Outing for insurance urposes.
