Cork Skeptics is a group dedicated to promoting skepticism, science, and rational thinking in Cork City, Ireland and beyond.
Our aim is to encourage a rational and inquisitive attitude towards all manner of topics, from the paranormal to alternative medicine, while connecting and interacting with the burgeoning national and international skeptical movement.
On the third Friday of each month, we host a talk at Blackrock Castle Observatory. These meetings, which we have dubbed Skeptics In The Castle, usually feature a talk or presentation from an invited guest speaker on a particular topic relevant to skepticism, followed by question time, and drinks at the adjoining bar.
The talks are informal, aimed at a general audience, and—we hope—as interesting as possible. It is free to attend, and we welcome anyone curious in finding out more to come along and see what skepticism is all about.
