The Bishop of Galway says it’s important that we recover our reputation as Ireland of the Welcomes
Galway attracted much attention earlier this year for its opposition to a planned refugee centre in Oughterard.
Bishop Kelly says new communities must be welcomed, just as the Irish were welcomed in other countries down through recent decades.
Speaking on Galway Bay fm’s annual Christmas Messages Programme Bishop Kelly said politically and culturally we must recover our welcome.
Bishop Kelly will be joined on the programme by Mayor of Galway Mike Cubbard, Cathaoirleach of Galway County Council Jimmy McClearn, Church of Ireland Rector Reverend Lynda Peilow and Reverend Helen Freeburn of the Presbyterian and Methodist Community.
