“I could never have asked for a more warm, welcoming, good-natured, fun group of people to welcome me into Ireland. I still feel a strong sense of connection to everyone who was part of my stay, and love keeping in touch; AI isn’t about just a job or going through the motions. It’s real and from the heart.
I feel such a strong connection to Ireland itself now as well. I’d always loved the idea of it before, but after living there for a few weeks it feels like home. AI lets you come to know the place of Ireland: the land itself, the history, what makes it so incredible, without gimmicks or tourist traps, which is invaluable. My stay there only strengthened my sense of Irish heritage, and I still ache to return.”
