 Archbishop-elect of Tuam Francis Duffy at the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Tuam, Galway this morning

This morning/afternoon.

Tuam, county Galway.

Via The Irish Catholic:

Pope Francis has appointed Archbishop-elect Francis Duffy to succeed the retiring Archbishop of Tuam Michael Neary,…

The archbishop-elect was “surprised and humbled” by the announcement, he told the congregation gathered at the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Tuam, Galway.

In his address, he added that for the Church to move forward, “we must listen to all who have been hurt by their experience of Church”, while paying testimony to the “vital role” of the clergy”.


Primate of All-Ireland Archbishop Eamon Martin wished Dr Duffy “every blessing” in his new role, saying:

“He has already made significant contributions to the Bishops’ Conference in the fields of finance and administration, Catholic education, liturgy, pastoral renewal and adult faith development.

“With the help of God’s grace, and with the support and prayers of the faithful, he will now bring these gifts to the service of the Church in the West of Ireland.”

Taoiseach Micheál Martin at a briefing on plans to reopen schools next month.

He said a comprehensive plan will be brought to Cabinet on Monday detailing a package of measures, including…

….around the well-being of children who have been absent from classrooms for several months.

There will also be special measures for students with additional needs and plans for children and teachers with compromised immunity.

Mr Martin said: “The objective is that schools will be fully open, and to keep everyone safe.”

Now kiss his ring.
