their is a good number of clubs around the country, which is great,
I wonder what happened to Sligo dark skies, anyone know?
also I presume the cavan starwalkers is the Breffni star walkers, that looked promising for a while but ther doesn't seem to be anything happening with them,

I am a member of Breffini Star Walkers. Unfortunately it is no longer active for the past 2 years.
I never heard of Sligo dark skies until now. I would join there club if I knew where they are?
There are no clubs that cater for the Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim, Roscommon and Mayo region.
This is a big junk of the country. I would join a club if it is in this region of the country.
