Hanging with the Muslims

The plan was to learn about Islam, a religion which has gotten a pretty bad rap in recent years, what with Muslim terrorists and all that jazz. Given that it’s the second biggest religion in the world, with 1.5 billion or so devotees, I know embarrassingly little about it. So I figured I’d read up on it today, and try visit a mosque in Cork so I might meet some real-life Muslims and ask them a few questions. Turned out to be a bit of an adventure.
