St Mary’s Cathedral was packed to capacity on Sunday 11th March 2018 for the Episcopal Ordination of Monsignor Dermot Farrell as the new Bishop of Ossory.  A priest of the Diocese of Meath, Bishop Farrell was ordained to the Episcopate by Most Rev. Diarmuid Martin, Archbishop of Dublin, assisted by the Bishop of Meath Most Rev. Michael Smith & the Papal Nuncio Most Rev. Jude Okolo. Members of Bishop Farrell’s family, along with neighbours, friends and parishioners from his home parish of Castletown Geoghegan and the many communities he has served joined people representing every parish of the diocese of Ossory for the joyful and inspiring Liturgy.  Bishops from other diocese in Ireland and priests from Meath, Ossory, and many other places were also in attendance. We wish Bishop Farrell every blessing as he begins his pastoral ministry among us. Ad Multos Annos!
