In case you missed it, Pope Francis’ visit to Ireland next year will cost €20 million and we think that’s a bit steep.
This is nothing against Fran here, we think he’s a great lad but there’s that feeling about that we’re missing the big picture.
It’s kind of like when you spend lots of money on a Summer holiday only for it to be gone in a matter of days, only with this we don’t get the holiday part. The Pope does.
With this in mind, we’ve had a brainstorm and think that this money could be better spent in other ways. Let us go through them.
