The annual Mercy In The Mall event returns to the Skycourt Shopping Centre in Shannon today.

19 priests from across the Diocese of Killaloe, led by Bishop Fintan Monahan, will hear the confessions of shoppers in the run-up to Christmas.

This is the fourth year of the event, and it takes place until 5 o’clock this evening.


Bishop Fintan believes it is an effective way of engaging people with the Church, including some who haven’t had their confessions heard for some time
