CCTV and radio communications tender invited

Preparations for the Pope's visit to Ireland have stepped up a gear.

The Government will spend at least 1.2 million euro on security for the Papal trip to Dublin.

Tenders are being sought to provide CCTV, radio communications and a public address system.

Pope Francis will attend the Festival of Families in Croke Park in August.

The Pontiff will also celebrate mass in the Phoenix Park.
