I’m one of those people who think Ireland is very special.
As an ex-pat American living here for years, these are a few of the Reasons Why I Love Ireland.
(NOTE This was one of the first posts I wrote here on Vibrant Ireland, back in 2010)
1. The stunning natural beauty of much of the countryside, easily reached even if you are in the middle of Dublin. You can also reach the sea from anywhere in about a 90 minute drive.
10. The sense of community. I know in our own little town it is quite strong; it is the same for many places in Ireland, in Ireland as a whole, and in its diaspora. I’m very, very, happy to live in Ireland, and all the sensational financial disaster news reports won’t change that.
