After an incredible time in Barcelona, I finally arrived back in Ireland. Upon my arrival I visited the Trinity scholars Jen and Christine. On St. Patrick’s Day I got to attend the parade and celebrate one of the biggest holidays in Ireland. There were thousands of people and tourist from all over watching the parade and celebrating. It was very different from the way in which I celebrate St. Patrick’s Day back home in Philadelphia in that the atmosphere was so lively and energetic with people up and down every street in the city with traditional Irish music playing. It was great getting to see all of the pride and family’s celebrating the holiday in the city. After a long few days in Barcelona then St. Patrick’s Day in Dublin it was finally time to head back to Carlow. It was great being able to travel and get a break from everything for a few days. It was defiantly one of the best weeks that I have had and really appreciative of having the opportunity to do so.
