Church of Ireland Bishop visits 15 railway stations on Good Friday

By David Tucker

BISHOP Michael Burrows is planning to visit 15 railway stations in his Diocese on Good Friday (April 3).

At each station he will deliver 'a tailor-made' reflection on the day for the area.

The Church of Ireland Bishop's diocese of Cashel, Ferns and Ossory includes Wexford, Carlow, Kilkenny Wicklow, Laois, Offaly, Tipperary and Waterford.

A spokesman for the bishop said the tour 'was not a fundraiser per se but in consideration of kindnesses afforded to the bishop by Irish Rail, there will be a collection at each stop in aid of the IR Benefit Fund.'

Bishop Burrows will be in Wexford, the 11th station, at 5.20 p.m., Enniscorthy at 6.15 p.m., Gorey at 7.05 p.m. from where he will leave for Carlow.
