Ireland Study Abroad 2014

The Department of Languages and Literature sponsored a study abroad trip to Ireland in the summer of 2014. Over twelve days participants visited Dublin, Killarney, and Galway. Among other literary sites, the trip included visits to Coole Parke and Thoor Ballylee, home to poet William Butler Yeats and setting for some of his most important verse; the Book of Kells at Trinity College; and the James Joyce Museum, as well as sites associated with the Easter Rising in 1916, the start of the Irish War of Independence. NSU students participated in the trip for three-hours undergraduate or graduate credit.
