    1. Nancy, thanks for writing. Trinity College is an absolutely beautiful campus – so historic and elegant. I was very fortunate to be a student there during both my undergraduate and postgraduate years. Whenever I go to Dublin now, I make a point of dropping in. There is a great sense of vibrancy there and I always feel a real sense of past and future converging.

  1. Great photography and great memories. I too revisit every chance I get since leaving in ’74. Really enjoyed watching the slide-show.

    1. Hi Dave, thanks for writing and I’m glad the slideshow brought back happy memories. Is there any particular part of Trinity that is really special for you?

    1. Philip, thanks so much for your kind words. I’m delighted you enjoyed the slideshow. Are there any other places, angles associated with Trinity that you would have included?

    I am reblogging this Slideshow of Trinity College, in my Gatherings from Ireland series, because today April 4th marks the day on which one of Trinity’s famous graduates, Oliver Goldsmith, died.
    Oliver Goldsmith (1730-1774) was a novelist, playwright and poet whose great works include the novel ‘The Vicar of Wakefield ‘ and poem ‘The Deserted Village.’
    A statue of Goldsmith stands at the entrance to Trinity College and has been part of the beauty, history and inspiration for the hundreds of thousands of students, including myself, who have been fortunate enough to follow in Oliver Goldsmith’s footsteps and study at this wonderful university which is such an oasis in the centre of Dublin.

  3. Oh, myyyy . . . how lovely . . . and you produced it yourself, Jean . . . I’m so impressed and grateful. Needed a nice, little vacation just now, peeped at OE, and clicked on for another of your ‘gatherings.’ Oh, for the days when I myself relished such a world ! Hmmm . . . guess I’m way overdue for a such a break ! Thanks for the reminder !
