  1. Thank you so much for all your informative posts regarding Cork, Ireland…..my daughter leaves Monday,Aug 31st for her Sr year fall semester at UCC….and after I read your blogs/info I feel that she will survive/thrive!! BTW she is also a Latin Scholar, having 4 years a Catholic all girls HS and an officer in the Jr Classical League.
