Description   Pope John Paul II prepares to kiss the ground on his arrival at Dublin Airport on 29 September 1979, at the start of his three-day visit to Ireland. A television cameraman is kneeling beside him on the ground to film the moment. Cardinal Tomás Ó Fiaich can be seen in the background. Pope John Paul II was in Ireland from 29 September to 1 October 1979.

NB: The blurring in this shot is probably due to camera shake. The same problem occurs in the original scan of this image (CD Ref No: 0688/037).
