The Marine, Atmospheric and Astronomical sciences readily lend themselves to promoting science and the role of researchers to the general public. In 2011 we had a very successful Researchers Night with over 10,000 attendees and publicity which reached at least half a million people both locally and nationally. Building upon this success we would like in 2012 to extend our activity to link with Blackrock Castle Observatory in Cork and to participate in the 2012 City of Science Dublin. Given our success last year we do not want to change our approach albeit learning from some of the problems we encountered last year. This year the look of the event will be different and designed to encourage as much participation as possible.
