Help Hailey Plan for Her Summer in Ireland

August 24, 2009

University of Limerick, originally uploaded by derhur.

Hailey, one of our Facebook Fans, is heading to the University of Limerick (UL) next summer for study, and she could use your help.

She’s a history major from Texas with roots going back to Northern Ireland, and she’s not sure what to expect at UL…

What kind of welcome should she expect? What can you tell her about the school? What should she see in the city? What sites are nearby?

We’d love to hear what you think… And if you’re feeling creative, you could follow the suggestion Harry Dixon made on Facebook, and put your answer in the form of a limerick (see how much fun we have over on our Facebook page?).

    As a fellow who lives in Texas, too,
    rest assured, the Lone Star state will miss you.
    Try the pints, hear the music, take in every little part,
    but in Ireland it’s the people that will capture your heart.
    The genuine smiles, a warmth like no others,
    you’ll feel that you’re living among sisters and brothers.
    Just remember the Alamo, and our skies so blue,
    and be sure to share dear Texas with them, too!

    Best wishes Hailey, you’re living a dream! -Bill

    The Irish are such warm and welcoming people. You’ll make friends very fast.

    We had a wonderful visit to King Johns Castle. I liked the area where they talked about the coins minted in Limerick.

    Lough Gur was a very interesting site. Lots of little stops along scenic country roads.

    First, you will not find a nicer native population anywhere…we love the Irish!

    Second, I remember a bit o’ traffic (construction) as we had to go through Limerick on our way from Nenagh to Dingle but it was a nice city to drive through…so anyway all that to say…You simply MUST get out to Dingle…The ring of Dingle simply must not be missed if you are within driving distance…it was our favorite day/trip from our stay…and we had alot of great days!

    I would not bother planning too much. Take it as it comes, you will be much happier.
