The beginning of the Eucharistic Procession as it makes its way down from the upper Basilica

A group of Borrisoleigh Pilgrims travelled to Lourdes on June 16th last for the 5 day pilgrimage with the Archdiocese of Cashel and Emly. The weather proved to be a mixed bag but at least the sun came out towards the end and all who travelled got to see The Shrine of Our Lady and its environs in all its glory. The Local Lourdes Committee wish to say a big ‘Thank You’ to all who contributed to their fund this year.
