Founded by Darragh Sherwin in 2004. Group took a Christmas break and no-one met up afterwards. Sean O’Donnell rebooted the meetups in 2005. Soon after quite a lonely meetup by himself, Michael Twomey, Alan Kennedy, Kevin Gill, Michael Kerrin and Vicky Twomey-Lee joined Sean, and met regularly as the core 6 for awhile.

In mid-2005, Vicky took over organising Python Ireland meetups and talks till standing down as Chair in 2012 and Diarmuid Bourke took over as Chair, and Vicky is acting as co-Chair. See Python Ireland Committee for more details.

In 2010, Python Ireland had their first Irish Python conference called PyCon Ireland, and since then, PyCon Ireland has remained as an annual event. See PyCon Ireland for more details.
