Travel Time: ~13 hours Ireland has always held a spot in my heart. Growing up my mother would tell me story after story about her father, D'Arcy Finnerty, a man I would unfortunately never have the privilege of meeting. He was an Irish man through and through, and celebrated that every day of week.
St. Patrick's Day was a bigger celebration than Christmas in the Finnerty House, and still is today. I think the fact that I was never able to meet this wonderful man, my grandfather, I fell in love with the one thing he held dearest to his heart (other than his family), his heritage...Ireland! Going to Ireland and exploring the wonderful country that my grandfather was so fascinated with and now am I, will be an amazing experience, one that will help me feel close to the grandfather I never knew. Embrace the saying "ERIN GO BRACH", meaning Ireland Forever Ireland is...
