Pope to visit Ireland next year?

Catholic World News - March 07, 2011

Pope Benedict XVI will visit Ireland in 2012, according to media reports in that country.

The Vatican has made no announcement about a papal trip to Ireland, but Irish government officials have indicated that they hope for a papal visit. The Pontiff has received formal invitations from both the government and the Irish hierarchy.

The Pope's trip would reportedly be timed for the conclusion of the International Eucharistic Congress in Dublin in June 2012. He is also expected to visit Northern Ireland, becoming the first Roman Pontiff to do so.
