European candidate moots naming Offaly street after former Pope

Never mind a stamp, Senator Ronan Mullen would like to see a street named after former Pope John Paul II in Offaly.

Midlands north west European election candidate Senator Ronan Mullen has today (Tuesday) called on Offaly County Council and other local authorities to consider naming a road after Saint John Paul II.

"On Sunday, we were privileged to see John Paul II canonised along with Saint John XXIII in Rome," Senator Mullen explained. "Given this unique occasion, Saint John Paul's visit to Ireland should be marked in some appropriate way. One way the Saint's visit to Ireland could be permanently commemorated would be for Offaly County Council to name or rename a street after Saint John Paul."

Do you think naming a street in Offaly after the former Pope would be appropriate?
