“May traditionally kicks off the house-visiting season with many of Ireland’s great houses opening their doors from May 1st. More than 170 houses , gardens and buildings of interest welcome visitors for 60 days a year under the section 482 scheme that allows owners off set renovation and maintenance costs against income tax.” I am going to visit as many as possible!
I studied English and Philosophy in Trinity, and went on to a philosophy PhD programme in Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, where I obtained a Masters in Philosophy. I focused on Aesthetics and philosophy of psychology and philosophy of mind. I worked on a database for CIC Historic Campus Architecture in the United States for three years, and while pursuing my Masters I worked as a graduate student in Johns Hopkins University Press in the Journals section. I also studied pharmacy in Trinity and am a qualified pharmacist. I have published some creative writing in small journals but my writing and interest have turned to history. I maintain a facebook page related to this website, https://www.facebook.com/groups/1448658092000371
