The first computer game ever sold in Ireland commercially was for the C64. It was recovered by Craig Harrisson in the Computer & Comm Museum of Ireland and Craig worked with multiple copies of the game to eventually get a complete working version. It’s not ready for release yet as it is tied to the hardware used to rip it, but it’s being worked on and will hopefully be released in the New Year. It was called Hitman and written by Niall Ó’Brollchain, who went on to become the Mayor of Galway and later a member of the senate.
