Saturday Shooters Walkabout - Saturday 28th May - Dalkey Island

Saturday 28th May, The Saturday Shooters will visit Dalkey Island. Meet at 10.00am at Coliemore Harbour ferry port. Life jackets are essential and will be supplied on the short boat ride to the island.

Please note if the weather is  unfriendly for the ferry, the group can go to Dillon/ Sorrento park
 Dalkey Island is an uninhabited island and has been an important site of pilgrimage for centuries. It has been known as "St Begnet's Isle" since records began. The earliest reference to 'Dalkey Island' is from c. 1782. The island had a population of 8 in 1841. The Sound between the land and the island was a major shipping  port for Dublin Port, which had a difficult access. On the east end of the island is a fort with two large gun sites to protect boats in the sound.
There is a protected successful Arctic Tern colony on the island. Also look out for seabirds including gannets, goats and black rabbits.
 

This group is faciliated by Cormac Cuffe and, occasionally, other members of DCC, and everyone is welcome, particularly new members.

Health & Safety is the responsibility of each individual Member, all members should be mindful of their own welfare and that of others.  Dublin Camera Club cannot have responsibility for individuals’ Health & Safety.  Participation on any Dublin Camera Club outing or walkabout is at the member’s own risk.  Registration for this event records acceptance of this.
