New Bishop of Ossory:

Pope Francis has appointed Fr. Dermot Farrell, Parish Priest of Dunboyne and Kilbride in the Diocese of Meath, as the new Bishop of Ossory.  Dermot was born in 1954 in the parish of Castletown-Geoghegan, County Westmeath.  After completing the Leaving Certificate at Saint Finian’s College, Mullingar he went to the Seminary at Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth.  He was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Meath in 1980.  He served as a curate in Mullingar for four years and then went to study in Rome. After his return from Rome he was a curate in Tullamore and lectured part-time at Maynooth. He was appointed Vice President of Maynooth College in 1993 and President in 1996. He held the position of President for eleven years and was then appointed parish priest of Dunboyne in September 2007. We wish Dermot every blessing as he prepares for his new role and we assure him of our prayers and support.
