Pope Francis has been cloned so he can save time on his Papal commitments...
Or so it seems.
A crochet and knitting group in Mayo have made a Pope Francis from wool, and without a pattern.
Four women, Teresa Hughes, Jacintha McDonald, Maire Ni Fhearraigh and Helen Burke clubbed together to make a replica of the Pontiff.
