Religious experience: Lough Derg pilgrims

Here's another Easter passing by and I still haven't fulfilled an ambition to walk the Camino pilgrimage, those 780km across Spain to Santiago de Compostela.

This year, I'm blaming it on the restrictions imposed by Covid, rather than admit that the notion of setting off on such an April trek is probably beyond my capability.

Yet, it's fascinating that in an increasingly secular world, the challenge of a pilgrimage is not only still practiced, but - until the wretched virus intervened - had been growing steadily.
