The Space Shuttle and International Space Shuttle is visible over Ireland once again in November.

Space Shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to launch 16 November 2009 at 2:28 P.M. EDT  (Exactly 3 hours from now 7:28PM Irish Time, Monday 16th Nov) .  The Space Shuttle Atlantis has a crew of six and will travel to the International Space Station. The shuttle is expected to return to Kennedy Space Center on 27th November 2009.

I have outlined the dates the ISS and Shuttle are visible over Waterford for the month of November below.

The Shuttle will be first visible in Ireland at 5:54pm on Tuesday, fairly high in the south skies coming from WSW.
