Day 13: Security detail

Students toured Kilmainham Gaol, a former Irish prison of historical significance; many Irish rebellion leaders were imprisoned and executed here. (Photo credit: Kilmainham Tour Guide!)

We learned that most people were held in Kilmainham for petty theft of basic necessities like bread. And, there was no segregation of men, women and children. Children as young as five years old had been imprisoned there. (Photo credit: Lindsey Wotanis/Marywood U)

While in Dublin, students also had the unique opportunity to visit the US Embassy and meet U.S. Ambassador Daniel Rooney and his wife Patricia. (Photo credit: Embassy security guard!)
