I may be crazy, but I emailed the group owner this morning about  
restarting the group, possibly under my unexperienced leadership. :-)  
As many software shops as (I think) there are in greater Dublin, we  
should be able to find the core group of perl people.

As for London.pm, if you judge solely by the number of postings on  
jobs.perl.org there seems to be a lot more perl developers in London  
than Dublin. Perhaps the folks here are just silently keeping the  
world turning.

And Tim, I owe you a pint for your DBI work. I don't think perl would  
be where it is today if it didn't have such great database connectivity.
