During the past number of months the Armagh Observatory has
been involved in a project led by the Dublin Institute for
Advanced Studies (DIAS) to establish a special-interest cross-
border astronomy 'tourism' trail, covering observatories, visitor
centres and astronomical research institutes across the whole
island of Ireland. This heritage and cultural tourism initiative
aims to link the most interesting astronomy centres on the
island of Ireland on a trail that can be followed, in whole or in
part, by individuals, families or groups on organized tours.
Minister Joan Burton TD launched the "Irish Astronomy Trail" at
an event in Dunsink Observatory, Dublin, on Friday 23rd
November.
