Pope To Meet Rough Sleepers In Phoenix Park


Share this article


The Pope will meet rough sleepers in the Phoenix Park during his trip later this month.

According to the Sunday Independent, the Pontiff will meet with them the day before he says mass for over 500,000 people.

Brother Kevin Crowley from the Capuchin Day Centre has also said Pope Francis wouldn't want families living in emergency accommodation to be moved out of Dublin during the visit.

It's been confirmed some may have to because of increased demand from tourists.

But Brother Kevin says it would be a "horrible disgrace" if hotels and B&Bs were allowed to do that.
