And away we go! Monarchs are off to Ireland for Model United Nations Conference.

Saturday, March 23 – The MDHS Model United Nations team is off to its annual international conference! This year, MUN delegates have the privilege of traveling to Dublin, Ireland to participate in the conference hosted by Saint Andrew’s College. More updates to come throughout the week!IMG_0646

Monday, March 25– After a full day of travel and getting settled at our hotel we ventured out into the very cold Dublin air for some sightseeing and to check-in at the Model United Nations Conference. We went to Phoenix Park and saw The Papal Cross. The Papal Cross  is a large white cross that was erected near the edge of Phoenix Park for the Papal visit of Pope John Paul II in September 1979.

Wednesday, March 27 – We attended the second day of the MUN conference. Many of the students presented ideas and made motions to resolve their assigned topics. After a full day debating world issues, we took a break and enjoyed dinner together. The weather cleared up just long enough for us to get to dinner and back. After dinner, a few brave souls decided to get a glimpse of Dublin at night in the snow.
