BREAKING: Pope Francis Has Confirmed That He Will Travel To Ireland In August 2018

The Pope has confirmed this news with Taoiseach Enda Kenny


Taoiseach Enda Kenny has, just today, held a 23-minute meeting with Pope Francis in the Vatican.

The meeting was requested several weeks ago following the invitation to the pope by the Irish Catholic Bishops' Conference, enquiring about a potential visit to Ireland for the World Meeting of Families in two years' time.

And during this 23-minute chat - an agreement was come to. 

The last Pontiff to travel to Ireland was Pope John Paul II in 1979, where he made the incredibly famous 'People of Ireland, I love you' speech in Phoenix Park.
