Lir at Kilkee Golf Club is looking for chefs (head chefs, chefs de partie, pastry chefs). If anyone is interested, or knows anyone (maybe working in a restaurant here in Bergamo or Milan) who may want to move to Ireland for a while, please contact Sandra Quinn through Living in Bergamo (firstname.lastname@example.org). It is a fantastic restaurant and offers an excellent opportunity for an English-spearking professional in the industry to experience life in Ireland and work in a busy and professional kitchen. At least three years’ experience would be necessary.
A recent ‘Generation Emigration’ article from The Irish Times. I always find it difficult to resist reading these.
I long for the man at passport control to acknowledge me and my journey. A simple “Welcome home, it’s great to have you back!”
As someone who has always felt like a a bit of a tourist in Ireland (‘where in the States are you from?’, the kept asking me at UCD), I can kind of, sort of, identify with the feeling she describes, of wanting to be welcomed home, but not knowing if you really are at home at all.
