St Patrick's Day Festival and Tours

Staff and students showed more than 100 visitors around the Observatory and the Observatory Grounds and Astropark on St. Patrick's Day (Wednesday 17 March) as part of the Armagh City and District Council St. Patrick's Day Festival Events. In addition, the Observatory organized a public lecture by Professor Mike Baillie (QUB) on the evening of the same day, on the subject ``Patrick, Comets and Christianity''. This was a highly successful event, attracting an audience of approximately 70.
