Hi All.

I just received this post on facebook from
a follower of the Event.. i thought I would share it
with you all.

Noel Clarke: Hi Roy, I followed the link and read that thread. I am very familiar with the place and, although Dublin based, I am down there a lot, so hopefully I'll be there for this. A number of the posts on the thread were wondering about the place, and don't worry, there is plenty of observing space. I'll post on the thread once my account has been ativiated.

Cheers Roy

Hi Roy,

You can confirm attendance for the trip too. Prefer a single room but I don't mind burping and farting with someone like-minded. I don't know how loud I snore, since I am asleep when it happens! :devil:

Nice1 Seanie..

I will be getting names of people
sometime early next week and I'll
get back to Skellig Lodge with number
of rooms we require..

But as far as I have it at the moment
we have 8 or 9 coming down from NIAAS.
Your good self, Michael Murphy, Stephen Kershaw,
John Flannery,Robbie,Sligo Skies(facebook) plus myself.

I was speaking with Dave Connolly earlier and he might be
in too.
Also as I have you there, would you mind giving a talk/workshop

Roy, Well done for pushing this on.

I'm based in Dublin, but down in the Glen (Core of the Reserve) quite a bit so I know the area. I'm not sure yet if I will be down for this weekend but I hope to be.

A couple of people have asked about viewing locations in the area, and rest assured, there are lots of them (flat open areas, with reasonably close "facilities").

I hope to see you there.

Noel.
