In 2016 Mayo Dark Sky Park received a gold tier International award for the quality of its night skies, free from light pollution. We have invited Ireland's leading expert, Prof. Brian Espey to speak about light pollution in Ireland and how we can solve this problem. Our nightscape is disappearing rapidly, yet it is a valuable asset; preserving it helps us save energy, enhances our biodiversity and benefits our mental and physical wellbeing.
