Day 4

Sheep Farm, Youth Clinic, Traditional Irish Music and Dance Show

Today we woke up pretty early and made our way to the sheep farm. We were treated to coffee and scones when we got there and then we made our way to the barn. There were cows, a pony and of course sheep. Everyone got a kick out of watching the sheep dog herd the sheep. After that, we had the afternoon to ourselves and everyone made their way into town to get lunch and do some shopping. Sam Gage and myself found ourselves in Taffes, a pub known for its fantastic bar food. Around 5 PM, we headed out from our hotel and made our way to the youth clinic. Everyone had a great time playing around with the kids, who were enthusiastic and seemed to really take a liking to us. After we got back and grabbed some dinner, we saw a music and dance show with world-class performers from shows like Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. We all enjoyed the show and afterwards we made our way into town to enjoy our last night in Galway.
