Safe landing

Astronaut Bob Thirsk arrived safely for our fInal event of the Mayo Dark Sky Festival, happening today at 3:30pm We were delighted that he could join us for dinner in the GN Mulranny Park Hotel last night. Online ticket sales for today's events closes shortly, but you can still pay at the door on a first come first served basis

Change to Programme

Due to adverse weather conditions, specifically high winds, Emma Stone is unable to fly and so cannot join us for this year's festival - we look forward to welcoming her in the future. Stepping in to the breach are Karen Wolfrey and Yolanda Collins of the Dark Sky Preserve in Terra Nova National Park Canada. They will discuss how they are addressing light pollution, including changes to lighting in the Park and education and awareness.
