The Skoda Rapid estate was one of two used by the Pontiff during his Irish trip in 2018.
FSR say: We have taken delivery of one of the two vehicles used by Pope Francis during his visit to Ireland.
“It was presented to Foyle Search & Rescue on Tuesday.
“Fr Tim Bartlett, the Papal Visit Coordinator who attended, spoke of the Popes wish that the vehicle be used daily to help others.”
Mayor John Boyle was also present when the car was formally handed over to FSR.
The SDLP councillor said: “I got to sit in the Pope Mobile yesterday.
“A great gesture from Pope Francis that will mean a lot to Foyle Search & Rescue in their efforts to keep people safe.”Tags:
