Ireland 2007: Introduction

The first Alumni Travel Program, Ireland 2007, is slated for September 30 - October 8th. Forty-eight travelers will depart Boston and head to the Emerald Isle. We are fortunate to have Richard Finnegan '64, director of the College's Irish Studies Program, serve as our faculty guide.

The trip will include stops in Adare, Killarney, the Dingle Penninsula, the Ring of Kerry, Cobh, Dublin, Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, and Burren.

On June 6th many of our travelers gathered for a special meet and greet reception in Donahue Hall on the College's campus. This event was a great opportunity for us to meet each other and chat with Prof. Finnegan, who provided reading lists and movie suggestions for those interested. Our travelers include alumni who graduated in the 1950s through the Class of 2005. This diversity should allow for some great interactions throughout the trip.

Granada - Dos

We next drove to downtown Granada where we checked into our hotel and had some free time.  Several of us met up with some special guests later while others explored the city on their own and enjoyed some of its finer offerings.

Our special guests were from the University of Granada's GRIIS Program - the one Stonehill has a partnership with for our students to spend a semester.  Amalia and Teresa work for GRIIS and they coordinated a lovely walk down the Avenido de Constitucion with Jessica '14 and Elyse '14 as well as Sara '12 (who has returned to Granada for a year after graduation to get post-graduate work done).  All five of them were welcoming and informative.  We saw some of the university and heard some history of the city, and some current facts as well:  300,000 people live in the city but 100,000 are students!!  This was apparent as the whole city has a college-town feel to it.
