My spring/Easter break has given me the chance to experience Cork and Galway in more detail. My past trips to both counties have been brief because of basketball trips but now this break will be different. Galway will be home to the varsities tournament for a few days after Easter and Cork is the first trip on the list for the break. On Monday, Kiran and I got to the Blarney Castle and gardens in Blarney County, Cork. The gardens and sights around the castle exemplifies Ireland’s flora and fauna. The history within the castle is overwhelming in a positive way, and moving to learn about.
Once we reached the top of the castle, I was shaking and in full fear mode. If you know me, you know my number one phobia is heights. Kiran helped me stay calm and complete the mission of kissing the Blarney Stone. I laid on my back with my head dangling hundreds of feet off the ground and kissed the stone to obtain the gift of the gab! Another once in a lifetime experience to check off my list, thanks to Kiran and his family, Sport Changes Life, and Ireland.
