You're welcome along Chris.

I'm afraid I'm no good to you on this one, except to suggest that you check out Cork Astronomical Society .

If my math is accurate, you may even be able to catch their next meeting which is tonight in UCC :!: :)

Welcome Chris :!:
Chris I live about 12 miles west of Cork city and there are dark skies out here, I can nearly always see the milky way but to the east of me you can see the lights of Cork city but it doesn't cover mush of the sky.
So 3 or 4 miles outside Ballincollig will give you somewhat dark skies.
