The RTÉ Guide has all the information on the radio and television broadcasts for the visit of Pope John Paul II to Ireland.

In September 1979, RTÉ mounted the largest combined radio and television series of outside broadcasts it had ever done covering the visit of Pope John Paul II to Ireland. 

The RTÉ Guide featured a cover with Pope John Paul II as well as the daily television and radio coverage of three days of events from his landing at Dublin Airport on 29 September to his take off for Boston from Shannon Airport on 1 October.

RTÉ 1 brings each day's major events to viewers, while RTÉ 2 will show a recorded summary. 

RTÉ Radio 1 and Raidio na Gaeltachta, in addition to covering the major occasions, will have accounts of the more private functions, as well as many special programmes about the Pope and his background.
