“Boston it was our pleasure” October visit 2016
Boston possibly contains half of Ireland! This was my fifth visit, we are lucky to have both immediate family here and 2nd generation Irish cousins that we are as close too, as our first cousins back home. We were greeted with hugs and kisses and as the Irish typically do, we did not stop talking for days! Big family dinners were celebrated with eighteen energised chatty cousins around the table most days. We discussed our new program and we had more very valuable input on how to best serve the American Irish teens in Ireland. We visited Harvard University, Boston College, Mayor Walshe’s office at City Hall and the regular old haunts too. We had a fantastic launch party and we were delighted with the hospitality we were shown. It was with heavy hearts we parted but the knowledge that it was only for a short time, as we would be back again soon, made it bearable. Until that next time, thanks for an amazing trip!
