NINE OLLI-MASON MEMBERS, two OLLI family members and 13 other travelers (including members of two other DC-area lifelong-learning institutes) visited Ireland for two weeks in September 2012, led by Mason professor emeritus Dr. Cóilín Owens. This is Rod Zumbro’s video of trip highlights (adapted from a 42-minute DVD of a previous OLLI trip led by Prof. Owens, with new photos and new instrumental music). The trip included the major cities of Dublin and Galway, visits to the ancient passage tombs of Newgrange and Knowth, a “jaunting car” ride through Killarney National Park, a visit to the Heritage Centre at Cobh – site of massive Irish emigration, and a stay at one of Ireland’s best castle hotels, Ashford Castle.
