Irish pilgrimage to Compostela revives tradition

~from CWN

Irish Catholics are reviving a traditional pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, the Irish Times reports.

A group of 29 pilgrims from Kerry embarked on a ship leaving Dingle, on Ireland's southwest coast, on May 1. Their trip by ship and on foot will bring them to the cathedral

Spain's ambassador to Ireland, José Carvajal, was on hand for the launching of the ship, and dedicated a plaque at the dock traditionally used for pilgrims' departure.
