As we were leaving Dublin the kids were nearly in tears. They didnt want us to leave. We had a tremendous impact on them and we were only there for three days!
We arrived in Clonmel to my first experience in an Irish hotel,a horse race, and an Irish fry! It was a great time, and even got to the honor of presenting the winner of the race with a prize! Ironic that it was an American owned horse that won the race. I guess we should have all bet on that horse as Brittney did. She has the luck of the Irish already that girl.
The young people at this camp, much like our camp in Dublin, picked up and learned quickly. I connected with the boys as this camp a little more then the last one. Even gave one of them a wristband of mine to keep.
Sad to say that now all the scholars are splitting up and heading to our respective universities to get settled in. I’m going to miss them but excited to continue the journey changing lives here in Ireland. It has been a once in a life time experience already.
