About Tomo-Dachi and DAMA:
DAMA was founded in 2004 to bring anime and manga to the North-West of Northern Ireland, but has managed to appeal much further in its two-year lifespan. 2005 marked the first Tomo-Dachi convention, which surpassed all expectations for both the staff and attendees. TD06 was the largest anime event in Ireland's history, with three days of events and guests from the US and UK in attendance. TD07 promises to be even bigger.
