Science Week Ireland

Forget space. Forget the deep sea. Forget the South Pole. Go back in time to follow in the footsteps of the first Irish person to cross Africa – Dr Thomas Heazle Parke.

Mallow EDIC, in conjunction with Science Foundation Ireland, hosts three shows which will tell Thomas’ story, map the journey he made across Africa, talk about the new animals he would have seen and the new people he would have met on the way. And then there are the jungle donkeys!
