Fiftieth anniversary of St. Josemaría’s trip to Ireland

Since August 18, a bronze plaque in the central square of Cahir, County Tipperary, commemorates the visit of St. Josemaría to this small town, during his only stay in Ireland in August 1959. The plaque was unveiled by Liam Ahearn, president of the municipal council, before a large group of residents from Cahir and surrounding villages. The plaque, with a relief of St. Josemaría and local scenes, is the work of the sculptor Dony MacManus.

Another commemorative plaque of this visit has been installed on the façade of the Gort Ard university residence in Galway, where the Founder of Opus Dei stayed for several hours during that trip. Mayor Declan McDonnel of Galway unveiled the plaque on September 20. In his address he had some warm words for those living at Gort Ard: “You are helping to form good students and good people, who will help the city and the country to move forward,” he said.
