Some Kerry people still waiting for tickets to Papal mass in Phoenix Park

Some people in Kerry are still waiting for tickets to the Papal mass in the Phoenix Park.

Thousands of Kerry people are expected to travel to Dublin next weekend for the World Meeting of Families, with events taking in place in Croke Park and the Phoenix Park.

The Pastoral Congress begins in the RDS tomorrow, which will comprise a series of presentations and workshops, ahead of the visit of Pope Francis on Saturday.

Aileen Murphy of the Diocesan Pastoral Team says spaces are still available on buses travelling from Kerry to Dublin.

She adds they’re working to ensure all tickets will be delivered on time.

Meanwhile, mass to mark the opening of the World Meeting of Families will take place this evening in the cathedral in Killarney.

Bishop Ray Browne will say mass at 6:15pm, and all are welcome.

Anyone with queries over transport can call their local parish secretary, and issues relating to tickets can be directed to the diocesan office on 064 663 05 32.
