“in New York, Concrete jungle where dreams are made of There's nothin' you can't do Now you're in New York These streets will make you feel brand new Big lights will inspire you…”

This was my first impression of this city. I remember getting off the plane from Dublin in Newark Airport, my first time in

Dublin- Summer of 2018

If you have lived In Ireland long enough, you would know not to expect a lot in the ‘summer months’. The typical picture: several layered clothes, jacket and ‘hoodies’ and of course the essential umbrella or windbreaker.

The second time we got lost in the narrow roads between Dundalk and Slane and by the time we got there the last tour bus have already departed from the visito

St Patrick’s Day Extravaganza: Dublin Ireland

March 17th – The wintry showers and scattered snow flakes seemed to be heaven’s way of endorsing the events this year. Then again, if you have lived in Ireland long enough, you know not to pay so much heed to the weather.

It is my first ever Paddy’s day parade and I planned on making it memorable. With this in mind, I went o
