Club Outing – Irish Hot Air Ballooning Championships
The balloons go up over the Birr, Co. Offaly countryside – kindly sponsored and supported by Ballygowan and Birr Castle Gardens. The main launch area for the event will be the Birr Castle Gardens – weather permitting.
The event takes place from 23rd to 28th September.
Balloons are scheduled to launch twice each day, weather permitting, at approximately 7:30 am and 6:00 pm so get there early or late, any day will do.
The Irish Ballooning Association run this for hobby balloonists, flying purely for pleasure and no tickets are needed just to come along and watch. But you may have to pay to enter the castle grounds. (www.birrcastle.com)

SAFETY ON OFFSHOOT OUTINGS AND EVENTS
It’s easy to become distracted when taking photographs. Use common sense, take responsibility for your own safety and then go shoot and have fun.
