Ennistymon

Remarkable scenes of fervour and devotion marked the visit of Father Peyton to preach to about 6,000 people in the Fair Green at Ennistymon on Thursday May 6th. When he had concluded and was leaving with the Bishop of Galway, Most Rev. Dr. Browne and a procession of Priests,the crowd, which had listened in silence broken by sobbing to his address, shouted greeting and good wishes and finally broke through the line of stewards to shake his hand.
