This weekend I went home with one of my teammates, Ciara. She’s from Cork and I’ve never been so I was pretty excited to get out of Carlow and do some exploring. We stayed at her house with her parents and her 2 sisters. Her twin sister plays basketball for Glanmire who just so happened to be playing against the Waterford Wildcats this weekend as well. So I also got to see my girls Brittney and Dalacy play. I wish I could’ve hung out with them a little longer but it was still cool being able to chill with them.
While in Cork we did a lot of touring and sightseeing. I went to the famous Blarney Castle and kissed the Blarney stone. I got to eat some great food at all the different restaurants and pubs. I visited Kinsale and I also saw my first Gaelic Football match. It was a pretty cool weekend. Although this is my first trip out of Carlow I think that Cork is definitely one of my favorite places in Ireland so far. I’m looking forward to many more mini getaways!
