Maybe it's clear in Wicklow, Michael. 
But it's raining in Dublin. 

Clear skies from Aubrey.

We ended up in St Kevin's church. There were pot holes on the road to Wicklow head that your car could get lost in :-).

It was cloudy up to about 1AM and then we got 2 hours of clear skies.

Perhaps later on, Michael, you could fill us in as to what you observed or imaged. 
Up until midnight the only object I could see was the crescent Moon through lots of cloud. 

Best regards from Aubrey.

I took photos of Cygnus, Hercules and Scorpius.

Here is Cygnus.

Nice.
Judging by the spikes on the stars, you stepped down the lens, what f/stop were you using?
