That’s it… my work placement has reached its conclusion. These three months here at Fota Island Five Stars Resort Ireland have allowed me to learn and discover lots of things. Firstly from an educational perspective and also because I have met a lot of people and I could discover an important part of the Irish culture and heritage located around the city of Cork.
Last weekend I went to visit the Cork City Gaol which was really worth it! The visit lasted approximately one hour and you can choose between either head piece to hear the comments or read from a leaflet. Scenes of the past are recreated with human size mannequins to better imagine how things were before.
I also went to see something typically Irish: a greyhound race! In Curraheen Park in the western suburbs of Cork City. That was the first time for me and I was delighted to go along. I also bet but unfortunately I was not lucky this time!
Going back to my work placement I can say that all the people here in Fota Island Resort have always been very kind and helpful with me. To end with my last blog I wanted to speak about Irish stereotypes as I started my first blog with that topic. So please have a look at this picture.
Overall I can safely say that I was very happy to have worked here and it was a very nice and interesting experience over the past few months!
