I wonder if he'll get 100,000 welcomes in Ireland

"1st Lt. Sean Healy of the 2nd Infantry Brigade Special Troops Battalion is one of 12 American recipients of the George J. Mitchell scholarship. Healy will use the scholarship to pursue a master’s degree in International Securities and Conflict Studies at the University of Dublin."

Of course, congratulations to Lt. Healy, but I'd love to read about his daily/weekly experiences. The Echo or Voice should get him to write about his time studying in Ireland. I'm curious about the reaction he gets when he begins his studies next September at Trinity.

UPDATE Jan 29: According to this page, Lt. Healy is not going to Trinity, but DCU. And, Lt. Healy isn't the only West Pointer coming to Ireland in September on a Mitchell Scholarship. Erin Stevens will be studying Cultural Policy and Art Management at UCD.
