2016 Results & Pics from our Party!

Well done to everyone who was on the server. We had a tough job finding winners for the competition… but here they are! The server is open for another week. We have saved the world as it was. We may not be able to be online much, but you can be if you wish!

If you won but couldn’t make it to the party, don’t worry, Sabine has your certificate (and prize)! 

And a big Thank You to our sponsors: Blue Bar, Storm in a Teacup, The Bubble Room, and Skerries News.  Your support was much appreciated!

Sunday on the Server!

Lots of activity on our server, some fantastic builds – and at the same time, still a good bit of space for anyone coming online now.

Those who haven’t done so already can join us for this Sunday (if you / your kids find the time, what with the All Ireland and that) – the server is open until 9 p.m., and we have created a special-price ticket (€3.80 incl. fees, includes next Sunday’s Minecraft Wrap Party from 11 to 12.30 in the Little Theatre), so if you haven’t joined but would like to, here is the link:
As always, you need Minecraft for the PC or Mac (NOT the tablet, PS, XBox/Windows 10 Play Store – that’s a different world).
You’ll get an email with login details as soon as we see your order, normally within 30 minutes (sometimes faster!).
Here are some screen shots of what the crafters have done so far, it’s been a very creative Saturday, and thank you to all those who came along to the drop-in sessions in cccSkerries yesterday! Great fun.
So join us now if you haven’t already! Any difficulties at all, please send an email to and we’ll do our best to help.
I’ll leave you with a few pictures of this year’s server. Enjoy!

Getting ready for Soundwaves Minecraft 2016

It’s September – that means Soundwaves Month!

And for the fifth time, the Soundwaves Minecraft will be part of Soundwaves!

Go to our Eventbrite page to get one of the server passes (available online only this year), which will allow server access for all of next weekend – from Friday 16 September, 4 p.m. to Sunday 18 September, 9 p.m. You spoke and we listened – most action happened during the weekend, and some parents thought having the server open during school days wasn’t very helpful, so we are now focusing all the game play on Fri (from 4 p.m.), Sat, Sun (until 9 p.m.)!

As before, each player needs to own their Minecraft licence and have a user name for the PC/Mac (NOT Pocket Edition, Playstation, Wii, XBox, and also NOT Windows 10 – those are not compatible with our server).

For the first time, there are free drop-in sessions in the training room of cccSkerries for those who have signed up for the Minecraft Soundwaves Project. Details will be mailed to those who have signed up for Soundwaves Minecraft. It will be fun! First come, first served – five sessions @ six spaces max. You can use your own laptop or one of ours. It’s in 19 Kelly’s Bay Rocks.

And then there will be the wonderful Soundwaves Minecraft Wrap Party, Little Theatre, Sun 25 Sep, 11 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. (the end time in the brochure is incorrect, please do come and pick up your kids at 12.30). The price for the party is included in the server price!

Any questions? Contact us, Soundwaves Minecraft at or see for info & a few pictures from the last years.
Soundwaves Minecraft, that is Ciarán McKenna aka wututui (server admin; op), Mat May aka 480 272 (creative side; op), Sabine McKenna aka SabineMines (that’s me! Admin, op).
