‘An excellent introductory course to astronomy for non-physicists.’
An excellent introductory course to astronomy for non-physicists. It was delivered in a fun and relaxed way and at the correct pace that made it seem easy to understand. We covered a huge amount of content but the hours seemed to fly by. I especially loved the practical component of observing the Dark Reserve Skies with the naked eye and with the telescope. It is not every day (night) you get to see the craters on the moon and the moons of Jupiter. The archaeology aspect was also very interesting and has definitely sparked an interest in learning more about the ancient history of South Kerry. I will definitely be back for the follow up course.
Such a wonderful two days, thank you for holding the module here. I have been living in this area for the past 6 years and I am constantly amazed. Your course and handout have enlightened me to how much I have to learn!Both Professor Paul Callahan and Dr Michael Connolly gave very clear concise messages. You certainly looked after us very well. I hope you enjoy your tenure here in Cahersiveen. Again thank each of you involved.
…the realisation of the Skellig Coast Tourism Development Plan
The Skellig Centre for Research & Innovation can be important in the realisation of the Skellig Coast Tourism Development Plan. Imbuing the people of the area with their own story is key. It will bind them more closely to the Skellig Coast. If the Skellig Centre for Research & Innovation enriches and enhances the lives of the people of south-west Kerry with their story and helps stimulate the whole range of economic possibilities that can follow, they will have contributed very significantly to life here.
