Astronomy Ireland Events 2013

Please see below for for a list of Astronomy Ireland Events Calendar for 2013
 
Astronomy Ireland tries to make all of its events a national affair as the majority of our members live outside Dublin - something we cherish. So all lectures in Dublin are made available on DVD for everyone in Ireland (you can "BOOK TICKETS" or "ORDER DVD" if you can't get to Dublin).
 
Similarly the 'Watches' we are famous for running are held in several events around Ireland - if you have a telescope and want to set it up in your area in association with one of our Watches please email sec@astronomy.ie.
 
Check back on this page regularly for updates.
