New priest-in-charge
welcomed at Rathkeale


The parishioners of Rathkeale and Kilnaughtin, Diocese of Limerick, have heartily welcomed Canon Patrick Comerford as their new priest-in-charge at a service in Holy Trinity Church, Rathkeale.

The service was conducted by Bishop Kenneth Kearon, and the preacher was the Rt Revd Dr John Neill, retired Archbishop of Dublin.

The hymns for the occasion were specially chosen by the new priest-in-charge and the church was filled with joyful singing.

Canon Comerford’s appointment to this part-time post is a great encouragement to a widely dispersed congregation, from Tarbert/Listowel to the borders of Adare parish.

He will be combining his ministry in Rathkeale with the part-time role of Director of Education throughout the Diocese.
