Since Canon McGrath retired, we’ve been without a PP here in Killdicken. In fact, the whole area has been without a resident priest for the bones of two years now. Eventually last week, one man was appointed to cover the parishes of Bally, Glengooley, Honetyne and Killdicken.

Much to the discombobulation of those who worry about these things, the new PP, Fr Barney Roche, has decided to base himself in Killdicken.
