Learning the Fulbright Ropes

2012 Irish Fulbrighters visiting Trim Castle. (All orientation photos by Dave Chance.)

Fulbright Ireland welcomed us to to the country with Irish warmth and hospitality.

Although I haven’t sorted through my own photos from the September 6-7, 2012 orientation that Fulbright Ireland hosted, Dave edited his long ago.  Some of them are here for you to see.

During the orientation, we spent a day visiting the Hill of Tara and Trim Castle.  We also had a day of informational sessions including sessions on culture and language.

The Fulbright Commission in Ireland is very family-friendly.  You’ll see we all have family member with us.  For instance, Dave (my husband) and Heather (my sister) came along for the Friday festivities.

I’ll also take this opportunity to introduce you to Joanne Davidson–one of my guardian angles from the Irish Fulbright Commission.  Colleen Dube, another angel and the Head of Fulbright Ireland, is pictured in the photo gallery (walking with Jonathan Kennedy, who you’ve seen playing elbow pipes at the Cobblestone Pub).

Fulbrighters: if you want to download high-resolution copies of these and other images that Dave took, please email me and I’ll give you access to the Dropbox folder where we keep them.
