Study Abroad: Ireland

Study Culture and Human Relations in Rural Ireland: May 26 – June 8, 2015

Join Genesee Community College professors, Connie and Charley Boyd, on a two-week educational trip to the Heart of Ireland . Participants will stay in the town of Athlone, West Meath–about 1 ½ hours from Galway to the west and Dublin to the east. Students will explore the area around Athlone and travel to such places as Trinity College, the Neolithic wonder of Newgrange, Belfast (and the Titanic Exhibition), The Giant's Causeway, Tlachtgha (where Halloween began), Bunratty Castle, the Cliffs of Moher, Blarney Castle and much more. We will study the art, history, and mythology of Ireland. Students will also learn some Irish language, dances, songs, and they will learn to play the Irish tin whistle.
