A large crowd of parishioners gathered in the Community Centre on Friday night 22nd of September to bid farewell to our Parish Priest of seven years, Canon Anthony O’Brien. Canon Anthony has left Carrigtwohill to take up the post of Parish Priest of Mallow.
Many tributes were paid to Canon Anthony by Ann Marie Moylan Principal of Scoil Mhuire Naofa, Ann O’Driscoll Chairperson of the Community Council, John Dennehy of St. Vincent De Paul, Michael Ahern Chairman of the GAA, Fr. Bill Bermingham our new Parish Priest and John Fitzgerald Chairman of the Parish Pastoral Council.
It was clear from those who spoke that the contribution and service Canon O’Brien had given to the parish of Carrigtwohill was greatly appreciated and even though he will be greatly missed by the whole community, we wish him well as he continues his work of serving the Church and the people of Mallow.
