Glory, Glory Munster

munstermeetingCalling all Munster Pioneers!

In the last couple of years, it seems that the structures, that originally served so well to create a representative Munster Activities Committee for the Pioneers, have broken down. Due to a variety of circumstances in the various dioceses, only four of the Munster dioceses are currently represented on this committee. We can do better than this! We must do better than this! We would welcome the suggestions and ideas of all Pioneers in Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford, as to how to we will go about revitalising the organisation in Munster.
