Limerick Flying Club plan to host a fly-in at Coonagh on 21 & 22 August 2010. Party in club house on Saturday night. Accommodation available in the Travel Lodge at Coonagh Cross about a mile from the airfield. Lifts to hotel will be provided.
Watch this site for more info as the date appoaches.
A quick update.
Coonagh will welcome any pilots and their crews who happen to be in the area on the 21/22 August.
BBQ proceeding as planned on Saturday 21st. There is a Plan B in the event of adverse weather so there will be a social event at the club regardless.
Anyway who wishes to come along for the BBQ please send me a PM.
The more the merrier.
We have been having a number of inquiries from around the country about our plans for Saturday.
Fingers crossed weather will behave on Saturday to allow a few visitors drop by to say hello. Depending on which forecast model one looks at it should be ok during the afternoon.
Anyway for those of you who wish to journey to Coonagh I have been asked by the powers that be to make a few points:
1. All circuits are to the south of the airfield. (Too many houses to the north!)
2. Remember our asphalt runway is short and narrow - 416m x 9m
3. Call local frequency 129.9 for info
4. Class C airspace directly over (1,000') and to the west of EICN (2nm)
5. If coming via Nenagh please speak to Erinagh on 118.175. In the past they have had traffic fly through their jump zone without any communication with them. They coordinate their jumps with Shannon on 127.5
6. If coming and you would like to stay overnight please send me a PM.
Anyway, subject to weather we look forward to seeing a few friends from around the country.
Finally - regardless of weather we will be having a BBQ commencing at 19.30 local. Cover charge for food is €10 - which will be good value.
PS: Updated 20.55 on 18th.

SATURDAY: Sunny spells and just scattered showers on Saturday with a lot of dry weather overall. However rain may affect southern coastal areas overnight. Largely dry elsewhere with some patches of mist and fog. Another mild day, with top temperatures 17 to 20 degrees, in mainly moderate southwest breezes.
Huge efforts are being made by Club volunteers to get the place ready for this weekend - and I must say it's looking great Well done especially to Mark Loyd - every airfield needs such a human dynamo
Extra parking area prepared to the north of the strip, and some very interesting aircraft will attend... food, drink, and craic promised - even the weather looks good.
See you there!!
