Each Easter 500 young people with special needs from all over Ireland travel to Lourdes on Pilgrimage/holiday with the Irish Pilgrimage Trust. The Trust also provides respite holidays for young people with special needs at our specially designed houses in Kilcuan, Clarenbridge, Co. Galway and Cois Cuain, Kilrane, Co. Wexford. All volunteers pay their own fares so that all funds raised go towards the costs of care and welfare of the young people.
