As part of the joint initiative carried out on St Patrick’s Day by Armagh Observatory and Armagh Public Library visitors were invited to attend tours at the Observatory and to view the Library and No 5 Vicars’ Hill during the afternoon. The final event included stargazing from the balcony at No 5.

Among those who attended this final part of the programme included a group of international students from Queen’s University Belfast, organised by Ms Janet Chen. Pictured with the students and local Armagh people were the Very Revd Gregory Dunstan, Keeper of Armagh Public Library; Professor Mark Bailey, Director of Armagh Observatory; Dr Stephen Day, Registry Officer for No 5, and Library volunteer, Mrs Zena Dawson.
