As a Canadian living abroad – I get a little homesick every July 1st! I have had the pleasure of living in Europe for nine years now – in both London, England and Dublin, Ireland. These are two great cites in two fantastic countries – no doubt about it – world class. But on July 1st I always day-dream about my favourite haunts, and pass times back home, and of course family and friends.
Don’t get me wrong – I am very fortunate living permanently abroad, I make a living working in hockey, covering the game and commentating on domestic UK, and international hockey. I also live in a city with a great musical and sporting culture – and as a ‘Murphy’, Dublin is a great fit. So, in honour of my homeland today I thought I’d share this classic:
Happy Canada Day wherever you’re celebrating. And if you are in Ireland, remember Molson Canadian, Moosehead and Tim Hortons are readily available to all of us who miss home!
