Irish Meteorological Society Field Trip
Saturday, 27 May, 2017
Hook Head Lighthouse and John F. Kennedy Arboretum, Co. Wexford
The Met Society is organising a field trip to Co. Wexford on 27 May, leaving Dublin by bus at 08.30 and returning at about 18.45.
Price: €25 (not including lunch and coffee breaks)
We will first visit the historic Hook Head Lighthouse and Heritage Centre where we will be given a guided tour of the Lighthouse (the oldest intact operational lighthouse in the world).
Following lunch at the Templars Inn, we will visit the John. F. Kennedy Park near New Ross for a tour of sections of the park of meteorological interest, including the phenological garden, where measurements of plant growth are conducted throughout the growing season to form annual records that can be used to detect weather and climate variations. Provision for those with limited mobility will be made.
Please register early as space on the bus is limited.
