Greetings Srayoflight,
Welcome to our forum. Please feel free to lurk, browse, etc.

Having kids and family commitments isn't exactly something you can just whisk away; your time will be limited and you will have to wait patiently for opportunities to meet up with poly people.

Having said that, here's what suggestions I can offer.

First, use links to poly-friendly dating sites, to lists of (and searches for) local poly groups, and to our our board where you can place dating/friendship ads. The links I know of are:
Next, use Google or the like to search for "Ireland polyamory." If you do, additional local poly groups may crop up in the list of results.

A bit of offsite advice:
Quote:
"As for where to meet poly people, if by some chance you are interested in anything alternative like Renaissance fairs, goth culture, sci-fi conventions, indie music, bdsm, or any small fringe group, you will be more likely to meet people who have at least heard of poly and are accepting of it."
-- SpaceHippieGeek, Polyamorous Percolations
And even if it's not an "alternative" type group, if there's a club or something in your area that does something you're interested in, you can always join that group and it just gives you a way to get out there and meet people. If you meet someone on a platonic level and get to talking about poly, then they can decide how they feel about it without any "pressure to agree." Then if they do decide poly doesn't bother them too much, and some kind of romantic connection subsequently develops, you'll already have "had the poly conversation" with them.

I can also direct you to a number of threads on Polyamorous Percolations that might shed a bit (just a bit) more light on the subject. Let me know if you're interested.

Hope this info helps.
Sincerely,
Kevin T., "official greeter"

Notes:

There's a *lot* of good info in Golden Nuggets. Have a look!

Please read through the guidelines if you haven't already.

Note: You needn't read every reply to your posts, especially if someone posts in a disagreeable way. Given the size and scope of the site it's hard not to run into the occasional disagreeable person. Please contact the mods if you do (or if you see any spam), and you can block the person if you want.

If you have any questions about the board itself, please private-message a mod and they'll do their best to help.

Welcome aboard!
