Hundreds of People Lined the Streets
of Newcastle West on Good Friday to Support
Desmond College’s Re-enactment of “The Way of the Cross”

Good Friday saw Desmond College host The Way of The Cross 2015, an annual re-enactment of the journey Jesus took on Good Friday.

The Way of The Cross is now in its 10th year, and over this time it has attracted crowds in their thousands. The procession began at Calvary Graveyard, making its way through the streets of Newcastle West and culminating in The Church of the Immaculate Conception.

This prestigious event relies upon the support of a number of individuals and organisations. Mr Sean Shields and a team of 50 strong actors and backroom staff performed The Way of the Cross, with the Legion Ireland, the Roman Re-Enactment Society, Brian Smith as Jesus Christ, also performed in this solemn event.

An Garda Síochána, the Clergy, and the parishioners of Newcastle West and nearby parishes also supported The Way of the Cross. This year the Bishop of Limerick Brendan Leahy attended the event.

It was a truly remarkable vigil and Desmond College would like to thank the Parishioners of County Limerick and surrounding areas, and all those who supported this prestigious event.
