POPE in Ireland 1979.

Kerryman 1904-current, Friday, September 21, 1979; Section: Front page, Page: 1

Our Parish Priest, Fr. Patrick Doherty, has a few words in Polish and he has already been trying to pass them on to me so I can greet His Holiness in his own language. Miss O’Leary, who taught in Ballyfermot and Meentogues before taking up a post in her native Rathmore, is especially interested in the handicapped and the teaching, of the new catechetics. She and Noel Spring will be going to Limerick on Friday week, for a rehearsal of the Mass which the Pope will, celebrate on the final day of his Irish visit. Two areas in Limerick racecourse are being set aside for the Kerry contingents and each, will be marked by a special Kerry banner.

CIE plan to bring the Kerry people to Limerick in two special trains — one leaving Tralee at 2.50 a.m. and the other Killarney at. 2.35 a.m. Buses will take about 200 invalids from, Kerry to Limerick. ‘These will leave Killarney at 4 a.m., Castleisland at. 4.20, Tralee at 4.30 and Listowel 4.45 a.m. They will go right into the racecourse. Fr. Luke Dempsey, OFM, of the Friary, Killarney (Phone 31066), has been placed in charge of the invalid operation and will be pleased to hear from anybody who wants to travel. It is pointed out that there will be plenty of nurses to take care of the sick but that they will not be allowed to travel right to the racecourse unless they take the special buses. Fr. John Keogh, former curate in Killarney, will take charge of the singing, and prayers for a two hour period prior to the Papal arrival and Fr. Tom Egan C.C., Firies, will be chief conductor of the massed choir drawn from all over Munster for the occasion.

Several Kerry Priests have volunteered to assist at the Mass in Limerick and 40 will help at the youth Mass in Galway on the Sunday morning.

A representative from each of the deaneries in the diocese will receive Holy Communion from the Pope. Those who have been named so far are Mary Brosnan from Crosstown, Glenflesk, Mary Kelliher, Lohercannon, Tralee, Alex, McDonald, Ballybunion, Sr. Rupert, Presentation Convent, Killarney and Maurice Curtin of Lisdara, Tralee.

Details of the spiritual preparation planned for the Diocese during the coming week will, be announced in all Churches this week-end.

Employers and employees are invited to special Masses on Thursday night, and there will be a twilight, vigil in Saint Mary’s Cathedral,. Killarney, on Friday night and midnight Mass on Saturday.

Old Gaeltacht prayer By NOEL SMITH

AN old Kerry Gaeltacht prayer, which describes an elderly woman greeting the Lord as the priest brings the Blessed Sacrament to her home, will be sung before Communion at the Papal Mass in Limerick on Monday. The poem, entitled "A Iosa Mhilis", has the words:

A Iosa mhilis,

Ni suichain duit mo theanga,

Ni loistin duit mo chroi.

Ach bronn oram do bheanuithreacht.

Is go bhfana se ‘gam choich.

It will be sung by 12 musicians from Tralee directed by Rev. Pat Aherne. One of the most moving momenta of the Limerick Mass is expected to be at the Offertory when gifts are presented to the Pope by 20 local people. Pope John Paul II has expressed a wish to meet each person involved, the organisers said in Limerick yesterday.
