Settling in on the First Week of Classes

Well the first week of classes is quickly come to a close.  I am really starting to find my way and settle in nicely.  I never thought I would actually say this, but I truly find all of my classes intriguing.  I am excited for what lies ahead academically.  In particular, I am excited for an Irish history class that I am taking which focuses on the Irish struggle for independence from Great Britain.  I have always been fascinated by my Irish culture and I couldn’t think of a better class to take while here in Limerick than that one.  In addition to this, I am very happy to be included as a Kemmy Business School student.  Kemmy Business School is one of the best in the country and it is an honor to have the opportunity to take classes and learn from some of the best professors.

On another note, I played my first competitive soccer match in a few years last night with Shannon Town A.F.C.; it was a blast.  I was so happy to be out on the pitch playing the game I love.  While I am here in Limerick, I will certainly be looking to fulfill some of my leisure time with this team.  It’s composed of men all ages, which is something new to me.  In fact, I happen to be on the younger side of the spectrum!  Nevertheless, I look forward to making the most of this opportunity!

    CONNOR:

    I AM VERY PLEASED TO SEE THAT YOU ARE TAKING A COURSE IN IRISH HISTORY. THE McLAMP CLAN HAS A PROUD HISTORY OF RESISTING THE BRITISH, INCLUDING MY UNCLE CONNELL McLAMP, WHO WAS KILLED BY THE BRITISH IN 1920. YOU HAVE DONE WELL TO VISIT IRELAND.

    SLAINTE,
    MARTYN
