Quotes Series IX: Ireland

IrishI bring this week’s quotes to you from Ireland. I am here on a short break and as a second part to last weeks quotes on home, today’s ten focus on my homeland. It is amazing how when living in a country, especially one not doing so good financially as Ireland, all you can think about is getting out. Yet when you make the escape, all you can think about is how great home was. Catch 22. Besides the current hardships Ireland is enduring, I do love my country and would like to dedicate this post to the place I will always call home. Enjoy!
