Many of the posts for the coming weeks will be about the National Parks and environs of Killarney, Connemara, and Wicklow. I will travelling there in preparation for a study abroad trip scheduled there for DePaul students. The program is co-directed by me and Randall Honold, a colleague at DePaul. Randall's training is in philosophy, mine is in ecology: what could possibly go wrong. For more information on the trip see here.
I will be rereading and commenting on Robert Lloyd Praeger’s book The Way That I Went as I go. Another book that will travel the circuit with me is Tim Robinson’s Connemara: A Little Gaelic Kingdom (Penguin Ireland, 2011), the third in his trilogy of Connemara books.
