Pope Francis has appointed Fr.

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.
