Hello Milan,
I am sorry to hear you didn't have a good experience with our
organization.  I wanted to come back to you on a few on the points you
raised.

The main object of our group is "the promotion of innovation in
science, technology, modern culture, and creative arts."
Over the years we have delivered a range of STEM outreach activities
to further the above aim to the next generation. Just this year, we
have hosted a Science themed hackathon, showcased at EUCYS, Coolest
Projects, Dublin Maker just to name a few. We open our space up to 3rd
party events to help others such as Open Street Maps Ireland and
various meetups. With the limited budget and rely on volunteers, I
believe we deliver a large program and will continue to do so.

We are a membership run and funded organization. We do not receive any
government grants to cover our costs or to deliver the above-mentioned
programme. We pay market-based rent on our unit and have done for the
last 9 plus years.

We are happy to hear any constructive suggestions and can be contacted
directly on info at tog.ie

Jeffrey Roe,
