Professor Paul Callanan of School of Physics, UCC was invited to take part in the Skellig Coast Dark Sky Festival which ran from 4th - 7th April 2024. 

The purpose of Professor Callanan's visit was to give a public talk as part of the programme of events that took place for the Dark Sky Festival over the weekend. 

The talk was on "All the light we cannot see" and took place at the Royal Valentia Hotel on Saturday 6th April.
