The first of two reports on the IBIOLI's excursion to Birr Castle Gardens and the Birr Telescope, on July 16th 2016. This was my first event organised by the committee of the Institute of Biology – what an enjoyable day! Invigorated by the wonderful offerings at the Birr Castle Cafe we set off on our tour of the beautiful gardens and en-route came upon the magnificent six foot diameter telescope nestling there.
