Hi James,

Hope all is well with you. I am going to Ireland to cover cultural events in the South and Western regions for Porthole and Recommend magazine.

I read your essay about Ireland. What is the most important thing(s) about Ireland you would tell me before I go?


Mike Collins (the guy you met in Panama).

Mike, great to hear from you!

Not sure which essay about Ireland you are refering to.

The best thing you could do before going is to read Travelers’ Tales Ireland in its entirety. If you have time, you could also read Alan Ryan’s The Readers Companion to Ireland, but false humility aside, it’s not as good as the TT book.

And remember, you’ve got a famous name to be going to Ireland with!
