I spent ten months in Ireland (or rather in Dublin) from September 2001 to June 2002. I was one of the happy few who got a Socrates-scolarship for the world-famous Trinity College.
Thanks to the Dublin University Fencing Club (D.U.F.C.) and the Mountain Biking Association of Dublin (M.A.D.) I managed to avoid too much contact with
the numerous Germans in Dublin and got to know some really nice “natives” including some who still think of themselves as British ;-). Anyway, here are some nice pics and some tips that might be useful.
