Delfin Blog - A Delfin Love Story
As it is Valentine’s week, I wanted to share with you the love story of two of our Delfiners. Rafael and Luma are a lovely couple from Brazil. They are currently both studying General English at Delfin School Dublin. Luma is a biologist and Rafael works in financial planning.
First I wanted to find out how they met...
Silvia, 23, Italian
Thanks Delfin School for this amazing opportunity to learn English and have fun at the same time! The teachers are perfect, the staff is wonderful...but the Italian dancers are the best <3 Hope seeing you soon. ...
A Darker Green
"Next stop: Saint Stephen's Green."
We've heard that countless times as we hop off the Luas just outside one of Dublin's best-known green areas. The green itself is just as familiar, with its leafy paths, flowerbeds and fountains the setting for many a Dubliner's lunch break, or a lazy weekend picnic. But if you dig deeper, the history of the park is somewhat dark. It hasn't always been such a tranquil spot.
These days when it's sunny you might find a group of teenagers flinging a frisbee around, perhaps to the annoyance of that elderly man nearby who hoped to munch his Tayto sandwich in peace. However, he might consider himself fairly fortunate if he knew about the rowdy and raucous football games that used to churn up the earth in the earlier days of the park. It was not uncommon for a kickabout to turn violent. The shouts of "Pass it!" would grow into something angrier and more aggressive, the kicking feet made contact with the opponents' shins as often as with the ball, and a riot broke out!
