Well done Roy, well deserved

Great to see your at the helm of the fastest growing Star Party in Ireland and the Best in my opinion owing to its pristine location and official gold tier stargazing site.

Well Done

I can't believe it, thank you all so much
for voting for me.. The good news is that with the help of Dave Connolly, Stephen Kershaw, William Bean and our resident BBQ chef Kevin Stephen Smith we will continue to make the SSP a success for many many years to come..
To all the other nominee's, I'm sure you all deserved this award more than me for what you have done to make amateur astronomy in Ireland a success.. I am extremely humbled by this award and will do my best to live up to those who have won this before me.

Cheers Roy

Well done Roy and many congratulations, a truly deserved accolade for all your hard work and efforts. It’s great to see Irish astronomy progressing on many fronts.

A big thank you to those that nominated me, I was very honoured and humbled to say the least!
