Fr. Tom Norris, a native of Danesrath, was ordained in Rome in 1969, 50 years ago. In that time, he served at St. Kieran’s College, and St. Patrick’s College Maynooth. He spent a few years in the US and became Spiritual Director at the Irish College in Rome six years ago. Bishop Farrell has given him a new assignment as CC at St. Canice’s parish in Kilkenny. We wish him well as he begins a new chapter in his life. Incidentally, Fr. Gerry Byrne, PP in neighbouring Graignamanagh, was ordained with Fr. Tom, and retires this weekend from Graignamanagh. We wish him well too as he begins a new chapter in his life.
