Ireland 2007: Day 4 - Cashell


Doris chatted with us about the country's National Sport: Hurling (sounds a lot like Quiddich to many of us!) and how it dates back as far as Celtic times.

We then reached Cashell and stopped for lunch and took some time to see the very famous Rock of Cashell.

We reboarded the bus and began our 2.5 hour drive to Dublin, which was lengthened by a serious accident on the road leading to the highway. Johnny took control (and followed police orders) and got us through the detour and back on track. While waiting in the traffic, Richard answered some questions and discussed the Irish Rebellion.

On the tail end of our long drive we drove through Killdare and learned about St. Brigid and the story of her meadows. February 1st is her feast day and many of us decidedto take the day off this year in celebration!!!

We pulled into Dublin and enjoyed a group dinner once again. Most of us headed into the city (we're staying in a section known as Temple Bar) to check out the sights and sounds.

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.
