How to get there. From Cork city go west through Bandon, Skibbereen and onto Baltimore. Ferry to Sherkin last one leaves 8.30pm every evening, before that there is one every couple of hours starting at 7.45am and 9.00am on a Saturday 10.30am on a Sunday. Foot Passengers only. Buses from Cork city go to the bus sation(details next week). We will post a phone number for the desperate soon.)

On Sherkin walk or cycle westwards until you come to a road sign pointing to the Silver strand. Maps will be available at the Grassroots Gathering.

FOOD and FUN We have about 50 euro left over from the last camp and will buy some food with that. Be advised that the island shop will unlikely be able to cater for your every need so bring food.

A bicycle is a useful addition to a tent and sleeping bag. Surf,boards kayaks etc are great but heavy.

Hope to have a gathering to agree on communal cooking etc early on but thats up to the campers.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

From INTRODUCING ACHILL (by Mayo on the Move)

Achill Island (24 km x 19 km) is the largest island in the Co. Mayo (West of Ireland) and is accessible from the mainland by bridge. Its magnificent sandy beaches, sea cliffs and warm hospitality bring visitors back again and again for holidays. There are villages such Dooagh and Dooega, the high cliffs at Slievemore and Minaun and the magnificent beaches at Keel and Keem, under the Achill Head.
