Papal Mass Sunday 26th August
The Diocese has requested each parish to furnish them as soon as possible with the numbers of people intending to go as part of parish groups, as tickets for these travellers are being allocated by Dublin now. Parish Assembly needs to know who would be interested in going if the parish were to organise a bus or buses for this occasion. Because of pressure from Dublin and a possible high demand for buses from other parishes, the deadline for names is this Sunday, 8th April, accompanied by a deposit of €20, fully refunded if we haven't enough to consider it worthwhile going as a parish group.
One thing to bear in mind is that the buses will be parked 5km from the Phoenix Park, that's up to an hour's walk for most people. The information that we have is that there will be shuttle buses for those with mobility issues, but the Dioceses can't say how limited or otherwise the service will be. I don't imagine that people will be turned away easily from shuttle buses on the day, but we don't know that. Also, there will be no seating available for anybody in the Park, people are expected to take folding chairs if the have to sit as we did in 1979 for the visit of Pope St John Paul II.
Names and deposit to Fr Cremin or Eileen O'Neill. "
