Scope and content

Photographic prints relating to the Patrician Year celebrations in Ireland in 1961. Patrician Year was marked by twelve months of religious celebration in recognition of 1,500 years of devotion to St. Patrick. The prints were compiled for publication in 'The Capuchin Annual' (1962). The prints show many images of the visit by the Papal Legate Cardinal Gregorio Pietro Agagianian (1895-1971), greeting President Éamon de Valera and his wife, Seán Lemass and many members of the Irish Catholic hierarchy. The images are mainly press photographs.
