Meet an “Ulsternaut” … promoted in a Donaghadee chip shop!

If the local thespian's performances of An Ideal Husband isn't enough, here's another opportunity for a night out with some stars.

Pinned to a notice board in David’s Chip Shop in Donaghadee.

Meet Northern Ireland’s First Astronaut!!!

And observe the night sky with the Irish Astronomical Association at Castle
Espie Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust
near Comber.

Saturday 24 March at 7.30pm

Derek Heatly will speak about his planned suborbital space flight and sign and sell space photos, DVDs, posters, books (for all ages) and badges.

All proceeds to Northern Ireland Leukaemia Research.

Bring a camera for your photo with this historic person!!


Some folk refer to David as an Ulsternaut, or a semi-spaceman, but he did command the airwaves in an interview on Downtown Radio a few years back.

PS: They forgot to put the burgers on, so we waited over twenty minutes in an otherwise empty carryout for two Hawaiian Burgers! But thanks for offering the free bottle of water ...
