This weekend the German city of Würzburg comes to a joyous standstill, celebrating its Catholic heritage and the Cavan man they have to thank for it.

It's not St Patrick's Day again but the Kilian festival, which is starting with a parade of local clubs and  guilds in traditional dress through the cobbled streets of the capital of Franconia, the northernmost corner of Bavaria.

On Sunday, Archbishop Franz Jung will lead a second procession with the priceless relics of  Kilian.

Councillor John Paul Feeley is the Cathaoirleach of Cavan County Council and was part of the delegation which travelled for the celebrations.

Live from Germany he spoke to Aaron McElroy on The Wider View and started by talking about the itinerary for the next few days.
