    A taste of Ireland


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     One of Stacy Rumler’s stops while traveling through Ireland was visiting Charles Fort on Kinsale Harbour. After touring the historic edifice, she saw a boy and a man playing just outside the fort’s walls. "Really the highlight for me was seeing the little boy get so excited to play hurling with whom I assumed was his dad. I was traveling solo and it made me think of my 11-year-old who wasn't with me,” she said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    While visiting Ireland for 8 days in July I did a tour to Charles Fort in the Kinsale area. While leaving the fort a young boy and a man began playing an ancient Gaelic/ Irish game called Hurling on the grounds of the fort. It brought home the merging of past and present and the preservation of history.
