Questions for the Final Exam Essay

Our Final Exam is Friday, December 11th at 1:30PM in our regular classroom. Here are your options:

1. Our study of Irish history, literature and culture has shown a profound impact of forces from Britain and Europe (and to a lesser extent, North America) on Ireland. From the point of view of modern-day Ireland, what have been the most important influences from abroad? How have those influences been expressed in Irish literature? Are there any challenges left to the Irish from the legacy of those forces?


2. If you were to visit Ireland, what would you most be interested in seeing? What would you be least interested in? Be sure to support your itinerary with examples from history and literature!
