The Final Days in Ireland

Emma and I went into town, and I visited her school. Schools are mostly gender separated in Ireland, and all students have to wear uniforms. This was a shock to me, as I come from a public school system. For lunch we had popcorn chicken that was put inside french bread like it was a sub. I have been trying to find some place ever since to do this for me in America. Emma and I shopped some more at Pennys, and then went to Reginald’s Tower. That night I was an honored guest to watch the Cubs (like the girl and boy scouts) perform their talents. And I also visited Ollie’s sister, and her children after the talent show.

Ollie took me to New Ross to see the Dunbrody, it was a coffin ship that sailed Irishmen to America during the famine. After the fun and interactive tour, Emma and I decided to have a lazy day, and we watched the tele for the rest of the day. It was my last day in Ireland, I left the next day, and was finally in Montreal at 11:00 pm.
