Pope seen likely to visit Northern Ireland in 2012
CWN - March 14, 2011
A visit by Pope Benedict XVI to Ireland next year would probably include a trip to Northern Ireland, British officials believe.
A Foreign Office memo, reflecting on the Pope's trip to Great Britain last year, said that a papal visit to Northern Ireland "would take place in the context of a visit to Ireland as it is treated by all the main Christian churches as a single ecclesiastical unit." According to reports from Ireland--not yet confirmed by the Vatican--the Pope will visit Ireland in 2012, with his trip coinciding with the conclusion of the International Eucharistic Congress in Dublin.
