The next Midlands Astronomy Club (MAC) public lecture takes place in the Clonamore House, Arden Road, Tullamore, as follows:

Date & Time: Tuesday August 5th @ 8pm.
Speaker/Topic: MAC members and Friends
Title: 'Dedication and Memorial Night'
Admission: Free, all are welcome.



This night is a celebration and dedication to some of our members who were staunch supporters of Midlands Astronomy Club (Tullamore Astronomical Society) since it was founded in 1986. There will be sandwiches and refreshments, slideshows, and a dedication to the late:

- Vincent McDonnell (founder, long-time Treasurer and our first Librarian, died July 2005).
- Carthage Morrissey (long-time member, staunch supporter of our Site clean-up days and maker of 2 observing chairs, died November 2012).
- Ollie Walsh (long-time member and maker of a 10 inch Dobsonian telescope, died December 2013).
- Trevor Rainsberry (former Chairperson, Librarian and the man responsible for allowing MAC (TAS) to purchase our 1/2 acre in Clonminch for the Observatory, the first of its kind of any club in Ireland, died April 2014).

August's SkyMaps will also be available on the night FREE.

We hope you can come along and celebrate with us!
