Ireland: Arthur ’05, M ’18 and Lindsay ’05 Yon

Arthur ’05, M ’18 and Lindsay ’05 Yon traveled to the Republic of Ireland in July 2018 “to watch our niece’s choir sing and to tour the country. This is a photo of us at Trim Castle, a large Norman castle built in the 12th century. The castle is a cultural landmark and was featured in parts of the film Braveheart.”

Ireland: Patrick and Linda Morgan

Armed with Rick Steves’ Travel Guide, we set off on a 14-day adventure, staying in hostels and B&Bs, while exploring my father’s ancestral home. Highlight was actually finding relatives I knew not at the 19th Century family home in Co. Clare. Photo is from atop Blarney Castle just after kissing The Stone to ensure my Irish eloquence as I age.
