Agape

Every year, on the last Sunday in June, hundreds of people head out to the deserted island of Inchagoill on Lough Corrib in Co. Galway.

They go for a Mass on the old monastic site and also for ‘Agape’. ‘Agape’, as explained by Cong priest, Fr. Colm Kilcoyne, is traditionally, feasting after the Mass.

First broadcast 31 July 2006 (posted here January 2013)
