Carlow Hops to Luxembourg

A documentary aired on KCLR on Sunday 12th November that traces the journey of an ecumenical pilgrimage group, mainly from Carlow, who travelled to Luxembourg in June this year to take part in the annual Hopping Procession in honour of Saint Willibrord, Patron Saint of Luxembourg.

A relic of St Willibrord – who spent 12 years studying in Carlow in 678AD now resides on permanent display in the Cathedral of the Assumption Carlow.
