Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in Limerick

The RTE series "Would You Believe" recently visited the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in the economically and socially depressed area of Moyross in Limerick city.

I thought it was a well-made programme, as it just let the friars tell their stories, and let local people tell of the impact which the friars have already made in the area.

The programme can only be seen in Ireland. I don't understand why RTE limits some of its material to viewers in Ireland.

Whoever did the write-up doesn't know the difference between a friar and a monk. At least Fr O'Dea got it write.

Good to see you back, Brendan!

I'm in London and cannot watch the video, because, as Fr Seán Coyle said above, the station decided not to make it available outside Ireland. Could someone please copy it and post in on youtube and send me the link? I don't think that would be wrong. Thanks a million. Pedro pedroinlondonvideos
