Pope Francis is coming to Ireland in August.  It is expected that he will attend a meeting with families on the evening of 25th August in Croke Park and that he will celebrate Mass on Sunday 26th August in the Phoenix Park.
It will be necessary to book a ticket to attend either or both events.  As Croke Park has limited space, priority is being given to those who take part in other events that are being planned as part of the World Meeting of Families beginning at the RDS on 22nd August.
