Photos from Ireland

Super-reliable reader Fintan sent some more awesome pics from Ireland.

The first one is of Archbishop McQuaid together with a happy nuncio that I cannot identify:

The next two photos seem to show Cardinal MacRory, if I am not completely mistaken:

No idea who this bishop is. Nice cappa-wrap, though:

Thanks, Fintan! Great photos, as usual!

Everybody else: There's an example to follow...

Thanks to Ed for pointing out this one.

No idea who the bishop is. Readers...?

Pius XI

Many thanks to reader Rip, who sent in some amazing photos from the 16th anniversary of the coronation of Pope Pius XI. Here is what he has to say:
    I came across some photos from the fondo Giordani collections. If you find them interesting, you may be able to publish them..
    They were taken during a Pontifical Mass in Capella Sistina on February 12, 1938 in occassion of Pius XI 16th anniversary from his coronation. The Holy Mass was celebrated by Giovanni Battista Cardinal Nasalli Rocca di Corneliano, Archbishop of Bologna, Italy.

Thanks, Rip!
