Dublin, Ireland Concert, July 25th, 2012

After a long flight, the group was exhausted but there was a big, fun-filled day ahead of us! We joined our tour guide, Seamus, for an introduction to Dublin. It was awesome to see the different architecture of the city compared to New York. We were able to view the President's house in Phoenix Park. To finish up the tour, we stopped at a nice street to walk around for shopping and lunch. We observed the locals rushing to work as we leisurely strolled through the pedestrian walkway. After a scrumptious sandwich, we walked into cute little shops. We then proceeded to the hotel to check-in and freshen up for the afternoon tour. Once back on the bus, we headed into medieval Dublin where we walked to the oldest city wall built in 1240AD. Next we learned about the history of Christ Church, the concert venue for tomorrow! It was interesting to listen about the Vikings and how they built their homes. We experienced typical Ireland weather, there was light mist throughout the day so good thing we were prepared! The group had a nice welcome dinner at the hotel and celebration for our birthday girl, Ashley! At 9:00 we called it a night to get some much needed rest for another full day of touring and ringing!
