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.
