Why is the Pope not going to Ireland?

Because St Tony didn't invite him to Ireland. St Tony is the only reason this farcical jamboree is coming here; well, that and the promise of the money to pay for his trip.

He's got more sense.
I thought the popes visit was a trade off. He gets to go and get treated nice in G.B. with all the bells and whistles and the Free State gets to be nice to Liz2 and Phil the Greek later on

I don't think that T Blair/G Brown/ D Cameron or HMQ could have invited him to the Republic (Hint: the clue is in the name).

I'm just an old soldier, a Welsh old soldier, so I ask why is His Holiness not setting foot in Wales?

Wales is after all - God's Own Country.

His Holiness is probably cognizant of the fact that some of the Welsh Monarchs of this nation did not hugely appreciate the 'Bishops of Rome' of the 1540s.

Probably not quite the kind of "Kids" he's used to. :)
