RTÉ Christmas Day broadcast with Archbishops of Armagh

This year’s Christmas Day message with the Archbishops of Armagh was recently recorded in Dundalk, where Archbishops John and Eamon visited a local soup kitchen and met with families from Ukraine in a guesthouse which has given them accommodation after arriving in Ireland.

The Archbishops will speak on the themes of home and hope, in the 10–minute programme which will be broadcast on RTÉ One television at 12.10pm and on RTÉ Radio 1 at 1.05pm.  Music was kindly provided by Scoil Náisiúnta Réalt na Mara and Dundalk Grammar School, at St Patrick’s Church.  Thank you to everyone who took part.
