Games Fleadh is a 2-day convention held annually in LIT-Tipperary for computer games enthusiasts and developers to showcase their talent and programming skills. Six teams from TU Dublin – City Campus presented their games on the theme of "platformer" to a panel of games industry judges at the event on Wednesday, 6 March. The teams comprised of students from the School of Computer Science and the School of Media and each team has worked hard for many months developing their entries leading up to the competition.
