"It is a reason for rejoicing for us in Achonry that a priest of Father Paul’s calibre and extensive experience in pastoral ministry in his native diocese of Kildare and Leighlin comes to us as our new bishop.

With the death of Seamus Mallon the people of Armagh and Ireland have lost one of our most respected sons and bravest leaders.
