Prize-winning prose and poetry by alumni and 

students of University College Cork in Ireland

and University of Massachusetts, Lowell, in the

U.S. This collection of stories, essays, and poems by emerging and established writers is

introduced by U.S. Ambassador to Ireland

Claire Cronin and the Republic of Ireland's 

Ambassador to the U.S. David Mulhall. Defined

broadly, the theme of the book is learning and education, both formal and informal as described by the authors. Both universities are critical to their home communities, and the selections showcase the talent on campus now and among the graduates of the schools. The writers investigate their respective locales and document memorable learning experiences in a wide array of situations, from sailing voyages to strife-torn countries and among the familiar people in their lives as well as characters imganied.
