Bishop Denis Nulty has issued an invitation to participants at the National Ploughing Championship at Ratheniska, Co. Laois later this month to visit the Diocese of Kildare & Leighlin’s stand.
The event, from September 24-26, is one of Europe’s largest outdoor exhibitions and agricultural trade shows, which attracts on average 1,300 exhibitors and 187,000 visitors.
“They are a super three days in life of the diocese and in this my first year as Bishop of Kildare & Leighlin I look forward to meeting many of you from the country and around the diocese who will join us that day,” Bishop Nulty said.
K&L diocese will share exhibition stand 326 with the Church of Ireland Diocese of Ossory and Cashel.
Sisters from the Carmelite Monastery in Delgany, Co. Wicklow will also be at stand 530 after a “very positive experience” last year when their handmade candles, cards and calendars proved very popular.
The Irish Missionary Union will also have a stand at no 531 where returned missionaries will be available to share their personal stories.
