Irish coasts filled with Rosary prayers

Irish coasts filled with Rosary prayers Fenit, Co. Kerry

The third Rosary on the Coast for Life and Faith took place across Ireland in over 250 locations this month, with thousands of people taking part.

Organisers say an estimated 20-25 people prayed the rosary at each of the locations around Ireland on Sunday, October 13. Over 200 people prayed at Laytown, Co. Meath.

This year 31 other countries participated including the USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia, India and more, in what organisers say “is truly becoming a global event”.

The Faithful gathered in prayer at every corner of Ireland, from Antrim, Galway, Cork, Tipperary, Kildare, Dublin and many more.

St Augustine’s Church, Abbeyside in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford held their prayers on the grounds of the church. Over 80 people attended and participated in the Rosary to the backdrop of the ancient church ruins.

One of the local organisers said: “The rosary draws its mysteries from the New Testament and is centred on the great events of the Incarnation and Redemption with each decade referring to an event in the life of Jesus and Mary. The mysteries of the rosary give us ‘thumbnails’ of the life of Christ and his Mother.”
