I’m actually going to Ireland to give a presentation at a library conference, but I’m also taking a few days to drive around the southern part of Ireland and seek out poetry and gardens (if it’s not raining and too cold–Ireland’s green for a reason!) and find good places to write.
I last visited Ireland in 1955 (no, that’s not a misprint!). I was seven years old and my memories are few and scattered, but I do have some. While Ireland’s having its economic woes these days, I suspect that there is much to discover.
