The Irish Times – Ireland’s newspaper of record – ran a comprehensive story on Berklee in Dublin and the college’s stepped-up recruitment efforts in the Emerald Isle as its lead arts feature on Friday. The piece essentially gave readers a crash course on Berklee and its strong links to Ireland, with quotes from trustee Bill Whelan, Irish jazz star and Berklee alumnus Brian Dunning, and others. It also included four large color photos of students at the workshops and a shot of The Edge speaking at Berklee’s 2007 commencement ceremony. 

As a bonus, the Times online produced a multimedia feature with audio and photography from the improvisation workshops.
