A team consisting of Assoc. Prof. John Quinn, Ph.D. student Sean Mooney, and undergraduate Physics with Astronomy and Space Science students Rachel Dunwoody and Kevin Flanagan were involved in the installation of the I-LOFAR Radio Telescope in Birr, Co. Offaly, during summer 2017. The station has passed its commissioning tests and has produced its first image of the sky. It will be officially switched on by Minister of State for Training and Skills John Halligan on 27th July, 2017. I-LOFAR will operate as part of the International LOFAR Telescope with stations spread across Europe to offer unprecedented resolution at low radio frequencies to study the Universe.
