On Sunday Cashel Cathedral, hosted a ceremony to install Rev Canon Gerald Field as Dean of Cashel Cathedral and Rector of the Cashel Union of Parishes.
The church was full as members of his own flock and of the neighbours across in Friar Street came along to get a first glimpse of the new Dean. He said the welcome had been tremendous for he and his family. Originally from Birmingham, England, he spent most of his life in the Preston area. The move to Ireland wasn’t difficult, being a regular visitor as his wife’s family live in Roscommon. Fr. Christy O’Dwyer welcome the new dean on behalf of the Catholic Church. Minister Tom Hayes did likewise on behalf of the civil authorities.
