  • LUNCH in Mulranny

  • 2pm Ballycroy Guided walk around the Visitor Centre OR 3pm Mulranny Free Puppet Show (hard to make both!)


  • 10am Newport Telescope Workshop - a follow up to Saturday's talk, with prizes from KTec Telescopes!

  • 12 noon - if you didn't make it along to a planetarium show on Saturday, now is your chance! (Newport NS)

  • LUNCH in Newport

  • 2pm - choose between the Seashore Safari on Mulranny Beach, or a guided walk around Ballycroy Visitor Centre

  • 6pm Newport - Join the magical Lantern Walk, with hot chocolate from Kelly's Kitchen, walking from Hotel Newport up to 100 year old St Patricks Church, where you can stay for the concert featuring baroque music by Bach & Telemann, or relax and pat yourselves on the back for a fabulous family fun weekend!

Most of all - ENJOY!
