Getting there – Lecture & Workshop Venues

The club holds monthly lecture meetings from September to May which are open to the general public. There is no entrance fee for attending these meetings.

The centre piece of each meeting is a lecture by a club member or invited guest.

Also, a briefing on what to look for in the sky that month and club announcements. The formal part of the meeting finishes at 9:40 pm, and you can slip away then if you need to; or join us for tea and biscuits and a chat.

We meet on the 2nd Monday of the month at 8pm in UCC Civil Engineering building, Lecture Theatre 2 on the first floor. This building is near the College Road entrance to the campus.

Buses 205 (timetable) or 208 (timetable) will get you to UCC. There is parking in the University itself from the entrance on college road (bring a €2 coin to get out) and there is also the college car park near the junction of College Rd/Donovan Rd, which is big, well lit and inexpensive in the evenings.
