O'Connell Street, Dublin, 18:50
Today I repeated my Wordpress lecture to the second group of third year students. The third year students were definitely more talkative than the fourth year.
In the afternoon I had a meeting with David Irwin, at his request. He is the Head of Humanities and he regards our partnership as the most important and successful that his department has. Since I regard it as successful and interesting we got off to a good start. He outlined various ways in which he would like to strengthen the ties, and integrate our two courses more. He finished by suggesting that he wold visit Arcada in the autumn to explore our options.
I left ITT happy, feeling that this year’s visit had been very productive. The Wordpress sessions had made me fine-tune the presentations that I will need to give at Arcada soon, and the final meeting was a very nice bonus.
For the first time since I have been here the sky has turned blue. I have therefore actually walked into Temple Bar and wandered along the river bank. This morning someone told me that the best fish and chip shop in town is Beshoff in O’Connell Street and I an now about to find out if this is true or not.
I will conclude that they are better than Wednesday’s but not as good as the huge plates Auo and I had in Soho last autumn.
