fat chance of the weather behaving......I was sunbathing in Celbridge at 4pm this afternoon and dodging hailstones at 5.30pm:confused:How can you prepare for that unless you bring your entire wardrobe, plus plastic covers for the cameras, not forgetting all your filters.......

So far June, James, Vincent, Brian & me have confirmed the 22nd June in Castletown is ok. Anyone else going? Hugh, Eddie, Martin, Fintan, Rafal?

just to double check, you mean the 12th June? That's the Saturday, june

Sorry my mistake, should have said 12th.

05-21-2010, 04:09 PM
12th is fine for me

Can't confirm just yet but hope to make it, must check out Connollys Folly which is near by, last time I was down it had scaffolding around it. Great for Infra Red images if work is finished. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conolly's_Folly

Hi All - Sorry I have been keeping quiet. I've been travelling a lot for work (IT, not photo...), 37 countries in 6 months, and on 12th I will be in San Francisco, heading perhaps for Yosemite, so you may get to see another famous angle in the hands of a not famous photographer when I am back. Sadly, I cannot make it to Castletown. July-Sept is better for me, as I am back in Ireland.

I hope you get great weather for those non-IR shots. :)

Hi - just wondering what time we're meeting, can't remember seeing it posted ! I'm hoping it's morning time as I've realised I'm in that cruel place in life called 'work' that night - so time is limited for myself ...

Note also that if planning to visit Connolly's folly - still full of scaffolding and building railings I'm afraid......

See you saturday !

I can be there any time from 9am.

06-08-2010, 04:20 PM
I could be there for 9.00ish if I knew where I was going, anybody got directions from the M50? Hope the weather is good enough for some IR.

hi all, if you take the Galway/Sligo motorway (N4?) off the M50, then take the Celbridge WEST turnoff, which is the 2nd Celbridge turnoff, just at the top of the slip road you'll see Castletown House sign posted on your left hand side. Maybe meet by the steps of Castletown House 9/9.30ish? I have some maps of the estate with the river, woods and various bits marked. Connolly's Folly is a good bit from the House itself, back over the motorway, not sure if the scaffolding is still up or not.

And yes - scaffolding is still up on the folly.........

Good to see everyone again today. Well done June for suggesting the location and organising the weather :) The food was great also. See you all in September.

I'll join with 'the fizz' in that. Good location and weather to match. Congratulations on that June.
