coverageThe visit of Fr General Adolfo Nicolás last week attracted considerable media attention at both national and local level. In the lead-up, Nick Cuddihy, headmaster of Crescent College, was interviewed by Limerick Live 95 News about plans for the visit to the college. The Limerick Leader gave extensive coverage to that visit, and in a later edition they ran an article about Fr Nicolás launching the Jesuit Refugee Centre annual report. The Irish Times also carried the story of the launch. The Irish Catholic had an exclusive interview with Fr Nicolás, which they illustrated with a good number of photos. Two papers which went for the local angle were the Leitrim Observer, which had a photo of Jesuit scholastic Eddie Cosgrove, from Drumahair, with Fr Nicolás in Milltown, and the Fermanagh Herald, which carried a shot of local boy Brendan McManus SJ with the Father General in Limerick.
