Irish Welcomes and Farewells...

Good afternoon guys. Finally, my exams are over. Head feels de-stressed. It has been such horrible weather in Galway city though, that I have not felt like leaving the house. This is not healthy for me, as I am always cooped up in the house by my own choosing. Feel like I am missing out on what life has to offer. So, something will have to give by next week.

Important Things That Happened This Week:
  • ·         HRH the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip visited Ireland, the first time a monarch has visited these isles in 100 years, and as an Irish Republic.
  • ·         My exams finished on Friday. Let’s hope I get into Second Arts this time.
  • ·         The Rapture date was (again) wrong, so did not witness hellfire and total destruction of the Earth, as I do not believe I would have been the lucky few to arrive by God’s side in Heaven.
  • ·         Garret FitzGerald, the former Taoiseach of Ireland, passed away after a short illness.  

I have been watching the State Funeral of Dr. FitzGerald, and I cannot help but feel saddened by his passing. He was happy in his life, loved his family, and worked for the people. It was lovely that he saw the Queen of England on the shores of Ireland in his lifetime, before he passed away.

With the coming of the American President on Monday (tomorrow) morning, it has been a busy but good time for Ireland. I have always liked Obama, and I hope he enjoys his visit to his ancestral home of Moneygall in County Offaly.  

What is the meaning of life without the love of people and the love of your life.
