Men's basketball updates from Ireland: September 19

Day 10

Trinity College, Book of Kells, Guinness Tour

Our last full day in Ireland featured a trip to the Book of Kells at Trinity College, and a tour of the Guinness factory. I was very impressed by the Long Room at Trinity College, with its 200,000 books stacked from floor to ceiling. The gravity bar at the top of the Guinness factory provided a great 360 degree view of Dublin.

Getting to experience Ireland with a group of guys this close has been an amazing experience. Alumni Travis Wenstrom and Tim O'Toole were able to make it for our pig roast dinner from their jobs in London, which shows the commitment former players still show to the program. Our trip would not be possible without alumni like Travis and Tim, and everyone on the team cannot thank them enough for their support.
