Galway Marine Month of Madness Seminar Series

1st May 2010 The Marine Month of Madness is a celebration of Galway's maritime culture. There is a large programme of events and activities including a seminar series suitable for all ages. Talks will be given each Wednesday from 7pm to 8pm at the Galway Atlantiquaria for the month of May.

The first talk will be presented by Conor Ryan (IWDG & Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology) on baleen whales in Irish waters. The venue is very apt, considering that a complete skeleton of a fin whale, which stranded at Ballyheigue, Co. Kerry in 1994, is on display at the aquarium. Admission to the talks is free, but subject to booking by contacting Sarah Knight at
