today we drove out to maynooth for the astronomical science group of ireland conference. it was held in the national university of ireland, maynooth, which used to be a seminary. there are still portraits of clergy and old seminarians lining the walls. the architecture is gorgeous, and nearby is the fitzgerald castle, in ruins. so besides hearing about all the fascinating research people are conducting around ireland, i got to explore outside of dublin! it was my first time out of the city since i arrived.
