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.
