Moving to Spain does not mean leaving home behind and Morgan Fagg explains how
sometimes there is just no getting away from the Emerald Isle.
From jumping off a cliff with an paragliding instructor who learnt English in Dublin
to a Spanish teacher´s relatable stories of her time in Ireland, taking up Irish sports I
didn´t play back home, finding an Irish knight fighting in a medieval tournament,
celebrating Joyce on Bloomsday, finding a boatful of Irish girls in Retiro,
photographing, Alcala and Cibeles turning green for St Patrick´s Day, picnicking with
large Irish groups, dying people´s hair green during a political campaign and even
finding a job where the interviewer asked me to say hello to my parents at the end.
Irelañd is never far away or as the Spanish say, el mundo es un pañuelo.
