On the occasion of the World Meeting of Families, Pope Francis will visit Ireland next weekend. Although it’s been 39 years since Pope John Paul II came to Ireland, Pope
Francis will find that our landscapes still feature the indelible legacy of our Christian heritage.
Tourism Ireland’s latest video highlights some of these landmarks, the pilgrim trails and the footsteps of Ireland’s patron, St Patrick. The organisation is encouraging people everywhere to come and discover St Kevin’s 6th-century monastic settlement at Glendalough, marvels at the Book of Kells, follows the trail of St Patrick through Armagh and Down and see the wonderful Skellig Michael and Rock of Cashel.
The film is being promoted through Tourism Ireland’s social platforms, including Facebook (more than 4.26 million fans worldwide), Twitter (498,000 followers) and YouTube.
