The Emerald Isle

Back in Ireland. Actually I am posting this from an Internet cafe in Galway City. I spent most of yesterday on the Aran Islands (Inishmore, actually) with the Choate Irish Literature group and we will spend a night in Doolin before heading down to Kerry to the town of Dingle.

Galway is booming. Ireland arguably has been the greatest beneficary of the European Union. The cities here are more European than ever. Jobs are abundant. The Irish are richer than ever. Shops and industrial parks are being built all over. And the diversity of the population is more evident than before: not just Eastern Europeans anymore, but many more African and Asian faces as well.
