The Sligo Field Club (SFC) is a voluntary organisation. The objectives of the SFC are to promote interest in the environment, both natural and man-made, through lectures, guided field trips and other methods considered appropriate. The general areas of interest of the SFC are Archaeology, History, Natural History and the quality of the environment. The Club aims to interest the general public in its objectives and welcomes Members from all walks of life, family membership being particularly encouraged. SFC achieves these objectives by means of lectures, guided field trips and any other method considered appropriate. An annual programme of eight monthly lectures on relevant topics by national authorities is provided, together with a selection of evening, afternoon and full day field outings. We hold an annual programme of nine monthly lectures on relevant topics by national authorities, together with a selection of evening, afternoon and full day field outings. During National Heritage Week the SFC provides several lectures and outings. All of these events are free of charge to members and visitors. Since 2009 the SFC has organised an annual weekend themed conference entitled Celebrating Sligo the themes being specific to Sligo; e.g. 400 Years of the Borough to celebrate the Charter of the Borough of Sligo or A Celebration of Sligo Families in the Year of the Gathering.This year, 2017 our conference is on the ‘Rise and Fall of Landed Estates in the Northwest’.All Sligo Field Club monthly lectures take place in the Sligo Education Centre, IT Sligo campus unless otherwise notified. Details of lectures are usually announced in the Sligo Champion and Weekender. All the latest SFC news and updates can be found on our website and Facebook.
