The World Festival of Families concert has kicked off in Croke Park, with Pope Francis in attendance.
So far, the Pontiff has been entertained with performances from Riverdance and Daniel O’Donnell, but there’s one encounter that he will not forget.
Moments after Missy Collins of the Pavee Point Traveller group took to the stage they were introduced to Pope Francis for a blessing and some commemorative rosary beads.
As Alison Nevin, 12, stood by the Pontiff she chanced her arm and asked him for a selfie ... and nailed it.

I love that a young Traveller woman was the only person to have the nerve to get the Pope to take a selfie with her.— 🏴🦄 Sarah☘🇮🇪 (@sdbubbles1) August 25, 2018
