What I will say is this. My conclusion has been, without question, that Irish history has much to offer students- Not just of history, but students of the wider community. it has so much woven into its past, so much that has filtered and changed the path of the world, in ways that most people don't even see, right at the time it sits in front of them.
My incredible, heartfelt thanks to everyone who met with me and gave their time to this experience. The historians, guides, politicians and artists.
My thanks to the Irish people, who love discussing their history and are always willing to welcome a curious Australian with open arms.
To the History Teachers Association of NSW and the Premier's Scholarship Office- What you've given me is much more than a scholarship grant- You've given me the chance to show why this subject fascinates me- the chance to show others why every student I've taught Irish history too remembers it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
To everyone who has shown an interest. I appreciate it!
A big thanks to the colleagues and family who supported me.
But mostly, a thank you to those who made the history that I have the chance to record. Ordinary and extraordinary people who have woven a narrative that has infiltrated every corner of the globe.
