I attended the installation of my old school pal, The Very Rev Nigel Crossey, as Dean of Kilmore and Rector of Ballintemple last night at Kilmore Cathedral, County Cavan.
The service was well attended.
This was my first visit to the Cathedral.
Nigel now lives at Danesfort, the deanery, near by.
The Bishop of Kilmore, Elphin and Ardagh, the Right Rev Ferran Glenfield, officiated at the ceremony, assisted by the Archdeacon of Kilmore, the Ven Craig McCauley.
Afterwards we were all cordially invited to tea and refreshments at the parish hall, which was the original cathedral.
The tables heaved with sandwiches, cakes, buns and other delightful food.
The Bishop now resides at the new see house, within eyesight of the parish hall.
The old episcopal palace still stands in its own demesne across the road.
