A DIOCESAN tour by the Rt Revd Michael Burrows, Church of Ireland Bishop of Cashel and Ossory to raise money for the ‘Educate for Life’ project in Rwanda (CMS Ireland) and Swaziland (USPG Ireland) will include stops in County Kilkenny tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday.

Known as “The vintage vehicle peregrinations of the Bishop of the South East” Bishops’ Appeal, it will see Bishop Burrows visit the Castlecomer union on Thursday at 10.30am, followed by lunchtime at Kilkenny College, Kilkenny union at 2.30pm and Kells union with Inistioge at 4.30pm. He will visit the Fiddown union on Friday at 2.30pm.

Previously he has travelled by rail and on another occasion visited each church, all 149 of them, to play the organ. This year he is meeting each of his parishes in a designated location, some not merely in a church surround but in a town square or focal point, surrounded by whatever vintage traction and vehicles that can be mustered.
