Photos & videos from the astronomy show of Friday 16 April 2010

The astronomy show held on Friday 16 April 2010 at Mount St Catherine's School Armagh was a great success, "very enjoyable to participate, and so rewarding to see all the enthusiasm and commitment", as Terry Moseley from the Irish Astronomical Association remarked.

The show, put together by the Armagh Rhymers and the Armagh Observatory, along with teachers and pupils from Mount St Catherine's, celebrated the Armagh winners of the National Astronomy Competition that was part of the International Year of Astronomy 2009

The astronomy-based songs and dances were the first performance to incorporate elements from the forthcoming project, OASES: a peace and reconciliation programme, part of the international UNAWE (Universe Awareness for Young Children) activities.

The ceremony was attended by Mrs Ann Swan and pupils from the Royal School Armagh, the pupils and teachers from Mount St Catherine's School, parents and special guests from education authorities from both the north and the south of Ireland, and it was well covered by the local press.
