Of course, there are advantages and disadvantages for me with both cultures. On the one hand, I can enjoy the art and music of two countries, and I support England at fooball and Ireland at rugby! On the other hand, I don’t really know where I want to live. I feel very Irish in London but very English in Dublin. In conclusion, I feel lucky that I have
- spent my life enjoying two cultures.
