Day 1: We made it!

After a three hour-delay, a six hour flight, and a three hour bus ride, we finally arrived in Sneem, Ireland and headed straight to the castle to kiss the Blarney Stone. On our way to Sneem, we visited Blarney Castle and we kissed the Blarney Stone. Pictured above is the combined Marywood-RMU group in the “family room” of the castle.

Welcome to Encountering  Ireland, the class blog of six students and two faculty members from Marywood University who have traveled to Ireland to study story, community, and place. You may click on the sidebar to get to know each of us a bit better.  Throughout our travel experience, we’ll be blogging about our reactions to the culture and place, making connections to the poetry, film, and human interest journalism we’ve been studying as we go.  After we return to the states, we’ll be publishing our creative and non-fiction pieces here.

We hope you’ll visit us here again and follow our journey as we make our way across Ireland.
