Mary's Journey to Ireland

Current Location

Galway Ireland

Hi, I'm Mary, and I'm excited for you to join me in Galway, Ireland! Through this virtual exchange, we'll partake in Galway's upcoming year of spectacular music- and arts-related events. Let's go!


I revisited one of my favorite places in Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher. At the highest point, they are more than 700 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. It was raining, but the views are worth it!


As our time together comes to a close, I hope that you have all learned a little something about Ireland from my travels and hopefully it made you curious enough to seek out even more information.

Field Notes

To understand what it's like in Ireland, I interviewed a local resident. His name is Ross Clifford. Ross was born and raised in Galway, and he has since moved to Athlone to be near work. 


Ireland features beautiful coastlines, but they are not all the same. This weekend, I went to the east side of the country and into Northern Ireland. Also, enjoy my video of traditional Irish music.
