On Wednesday, 26th April, the Ambassador of Israel to Ireland, His Excellency Ze’ev Boker, made a courtesy visit in Cork to the Bishop of Cork, Cloyne and Ross, the Right Reverend Dr Paul Colton.  The Ambassador was welcomed to The Palace by Dr Colton and Mrs Susan Colton, and entertained to afternoon tea. A wide-ranging and interesting conversation took place about Ireland and Israel, direct flights between the two countries, the visits of Christians and Christian agencies to the Middle East, the closure of the Synagogue in Cork, and the vital importance of, and potential of, interfaith dialogue.
