This morning we had an Irish History Workshop conducted by Naimh (http://www.adventure-ireland.com/newweb/pages/eng_staff.html) and learned about the arrival of Christianity to Ireland. We were inspired by St. Patrick (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Patrick) and his leadership skills, learned about the difference between the shamrock and a clover, and were reminded that Ireland is free of snakes. Our travels consisted of a visit to Mass rock, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_rock),

  1. It sounds like the trip is going well! I aminterested to hear all of the stories. What is the difference between a shamrock and a clover? Aren’t they both in a box of Lucky Charms? Do they have Lucky Charms in Ireland? Do they like Lucky Charms in Ireland?

  2. …and of course shoe shopping, even in Ireland
