DUBLIN — Over 400 delegates attended the second annual U.S.-Ireland Forum hosted at University College Dublin this year which was yet another extraordinary success.

A Little Bit of Heaven
SOUTH BEND, Indiana — Sometimes a place can feel like heaven on Earth. Notre Dame on a cool fall football weekend comes pretty close.
