lunch between 12.30 and 15.00hrs. Probably about the average for an employee ...

Why? The vast majority of people in the occupied six counties would love to see His Holiness.
Indeed, thon must be why they wouldn't travel 100 odd miles to see him, seriously komrade drop the meaningless waffle...

Why are you so interested in this for someone that hates the RCC so much ?

Even going to the lengths of posting trainspotter levels of detail about the itinerary

Whatever your views on the CC and Pope are, that is some tiring itinerary for a person of his age.

I'm impressed with his energy to sustain all that within 36 hours. I'd be wrecked myself!

He should stop off at St Patricks and Christchurch Cathedrals and demand both properties be returned immediately to the RCC.

He'll have to drive up past Christchurch in the popemobilityscooter, after visiting the humble pro-cathedral, and on his way over to see the capuchin monkeys.
As he passes the occupied cathedral, He will have his head turned away from it, in a gesture of defiance.

It's good to see the Orange engaging with the outside world.
It's the sectarian equivalent of penis envy. He's covering something up with all that anti-Catholic stuff.
