  3. ATTENTION TO ALL THOSE ATTENDING 2015 SSP: Due to it's exponential growth the 2015 SSP speakers will now be giving their talks in Cable O'Leary's(just a 5min walk from skellig lodge).. They have very kindly given us a room that can hold 80ppl seated and room for 20 more willing to stand.. We will also be holding our table quiz and raffle at the same venue.. So a big thank you to all in Cable O'Leary's for your support of the Skellig Star Party. http://www.ballinskelligsinn.com/

  8. In May of 2014 a group of like minded Amateur Astronomers from Clubs around Ireland got together to hold the 1st Open Star Party, It was decided that we should have it at Ireland/Europe's only Gold Tier Dark Sky Reserve. From that simple idea grew the Skellig Star Party and moving on from it's 2014 success we have decided to make this an Annual event. There will be plenty for all to do over the weekend as talks/workshops will take place on the Saturday afternoon followed by a tablequiz, There will also be a BBQ on the Friday evening, Saturday morning/evening in aid of Bernardos. For more informaion please visit: http://skelligstarparty.com/ We also have a Facebook group page: www.facebook.com/groups/303261903202481/?fref=ts :www.facebook.com/SkelligStarParty?fref=ts
