But John Foxe, PhD, who came to America in 1986 to run Division I Track and Field for Iona College in New York City, hasn’t lost a bit of the engaging, convivial spirit or “craic” so characteristic of his Ireland roots.

Travel advisors note that if you stop and ask a Dubliner for directions, they’ll most likely take you there themselves—and entice you to stop for a pint along the way.
