What a fabulous day, with fantastic memories and growing friendships! We landed in Dublin at 7:30am and met our tour director who took us on a panoramic tour of Dublin. We saw so many colorful doors! We passed St. Stephen’s Green, Marrion Square, Liffey Footbridges, Grafton Street, Temple Bar neighborhood, O’Connoll and Phoenix Park. We passed St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the national cathedral of Ireland, where we will be rehearsing in the morning and Christ Church Cathedral, the Church where the festival gala concert will be held on Saturday.
After a delicious lunch near Trinity College, Ireland’s oldest university, we visited the college to observe the Book of Kells. Dating back to AD 800, the calligraphy and artwork were incredible and among the oldest books in the world.
Nothing could have prepared us for what waited at the top of the stairs. The Long Room housed the most breathtaking of libraries! Imagine floor to ceiling ancient books!
We completed our time at the campus with our first flash mob with Dance Unbound. So special!
I’ll leave you with one of the best parts of traveling with a choir and dance group! How fun is this?!
