It comes as the Catholic Bishops of Ireland have officially extended an invitation to the pontiff to attend the World Meeting of Families in 2 years time. 

If he accepts,  it would be the first visit by a pope since John Paul II in 1979. 

Bishop Fintan Monahan believes a visit by the Pope would be a joyous occasion for the people of the diocese.
