Many of you are aware that annually there is an event in Ireland

that attracts large crowds namely the Ploughing Championships.

Over several years now some religious congregations take display stands

at this exhibition for it attracts people from every corner of Ireland.

This year the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Cluny and the Carmelites of Delgany

had particular stalls while several religious congregations took advantage of
the Vocations Ireland and The Irish Missionary Union

presence there to be about and distribute information

 on their particular congregation.

I divided my time between their two places and

offered people the Novena of Confidence and Prayers for different occasions.

Throughout the three days we noticed that people came to

talk in the early morning and the evening after 4.p.m.

when there were fewer people around.

10.30 – 4.p.m. people were more self-conscious

especially if there was a person behind a table.

Once we moved away they would come to the stand and take the literature.
