A 13 day pilgrimage to the Holy Land will leave South Tipperary on March 1, 2014. If you missed last year’s trip, now is your chance to join this group for your own journey of a lifetime.

This journey in the Holy Land is full of interest and contrasts. It covers ancient history, including stories of Moses, Abraham, Jericho, many of the epic battles of the Old Testament, and those of the Crusaders. The group will visit places of the Bible, held precious since our childhood, and will experience the many climates of Israel, from the desert at Jericho and the Dead Sea to lush tropical Galilee. You will see Roman archaeology and savour its history. Then observe modern life where East meets West, with the Muslim call to prayer all day.

Best of all, you get a spiritual experience of a lifetime, and having almost two weeks allows time to savour it all. Careful planning and years of experience are evident in this itinerary. Accommodation is on partial board basis. The cost is €1,885 per person sharing. Single room is €290 extra. A Christian guide will lead the group and Maureen Ahern will be available at all times, to ensure that each pilgrim gets the most out of the trip.

A private bus can be provided from Clonmel, stopping at Cahir, Cashel, Thurles and Portlaoise en route to Dublin Airport, as required. The Spiritual Director is Fr. Brian Kavanagh from Carlow.
