Summer Festival in Clonmacnois

Some of the huge turnout in Clonmacnois in the main marquee

I'm back in Dublin again after a super few days at the Youth 2000 Summer Festival at Clonmacnois.

The event was run brilliantly and was attended by over 1,200 young people. It was great to see that well over half were there for the first time.

At the final Mass on Sunday, those who were thinking of a religious vocation were asked to stand. A great number stood up. Let's keep those young men and women in our prayers. If any of you are interested in a chat about life as a religious, feel free to give me a shout at prescall@eircom.net
Here are some photos from the experience...

I'm happy clappy...
