Promotional art for the 2010 event by Patrick Lynch

Irish Free Comics Day is an annual event inspired by the international Free Comic Book Day, organised by Rob Curley and involving comic shops all over Ireland, in which Irish-created comics are given away to comic shop customers.

The first Free Irish Comics Day was held on 18 October 2008, synchronised with 24 Hour Comics Day. Participating shops were: Sub City, Exchecquer Street, Dublin and Eyre Square Shopping Centre, Galway; Forbidden Planet, Crampton Quay, Dublin and Ann Street, Belfast; Tower Records, Wicklow Street, Dublin; Other Realms, Paul Street Shopping Centre, Cork; Comix Stop, 115 The Quay, Waterford; and The Shadow Corner, High Street, Kilkenny.

There was a 2009 event, for which Liam Geraghty and Philip Barrett created a comic strip, but I haven't been able to find a date for it. I think it was the same weekend as 24 Hour Comics Day again.

The 2010 event was synchronised with the international event on 15 May. Participating shops were: Sub City, Dublin and Galway; Forbidden Planet, Dublin and Belfast; Easons bookshop, Heuston Station, Dublin; Other Realms, Cork; and The Winding Stair, Dublin.
