Erm, the BMC link gives the dates for 2012, last year.
Its not listed this year (yet) on mountaineering.ie

Bear in mind that Fair Head is huge and the easiest routes are VS and above.
Yes, possible to spectate and get some good photos from above in certain places too.

The fair head bouldering guide book has recently been released, although I dont have it. Many of these boulders at the bottom of the cliff are bigger than your house.

Yeah, it's from last year, the BMC link is dated from the 19/04/2012, and they have a report of the meet-up here:

Hopefully they'll have dates for this year posted soon.
