Today, the eve of the feast of Saint Columba, the Bishop of Cork, Cloyne and Ross, the Right Reverend Dr Paul Colton, licensed two new readers – Alan Clohessy and Dr Kieran Hogan – to the Office of Reader.

Last year Alan and Kieran both completed the Certificate in Christian Studies in the Diocese (validated by the Pontifical University at Maynooth) and subsequently undertook an additional practical module in the Diocese. They will now embark on an additional year of supervised practical training in their parishes. Alan will be in Cloyne Union and Youghal Union with the Very Reverend Susan Green and Canon Andrew Orr. Kieran will be in Douglas Union with Frankfield, with Archdeacon Adrian Wilkinson.
