Gov. Doyle

It was great to have Gov. Doyle and his wife greet us on Monday. He spoke with all the students and asked some challenging questions of the kids. The US Ambassador to Ireland, was just as gracious.

I was waiting for the Gov outside the Gaiety School, which is off a tiny street in Temple Bar. He and his wife were strolling alone down the street. It was quite an image. No entourage, just the two of them as couple. In the setting up the Gov's visit, I was told it was the 1st vacation they have had in several years. We are fortunate that they took the time to meet us. A great kick off to our stay here.
