Congratulations to Fr. Paul Horan of Knockura Drangan on his elevation by Pope Francis to become a Bishop. A member of the Carmelite Order Fr. Paul has served in Zimbabwe for several years and will be consecrated Bishop next month.

Before joining the priesthood Paul was a prominent member of several St. Patricks Football teams until 1985 when St. Patricks were defeated by Ballyporeen in the South Tipperary Junior Football Final. Unfortunately Paul was gone from the scene in 1986 when St. Patricks defeated Ballyporeen in the South Final.

We wish Fr. Paul the very best in the future as Bishop Paul.
