At the time of my appointment as bishop in April 1988, Ronald Reagan was President of the U.S.A. Mikael Gorbachev was in charge of the U.S.S.R. and the Berlin Wall looked impregnable. As all these have changed, it is inevitable that there is a change in Clonfert as well! After a little over 31 years since my appointment as Bishop of Clonfert, I am happy that Pope Francis has today accepted my resignation. The good news is that, despite the prognostications of some, the diocese will continue to have its own identity and its own bishop. Moladh go deo le Dia.

On the night of August 18, 1882, five members of one family, John Joyce, his wife Brighid, his mother Mairéad, his daughter Peigí, and his son Micheál, were murdered in Maamtrasna on the Galway/Mayo border. The motive for this multiple murder is unclear, but John was suspected of sheep stealing, his mother of being an informer, and his daughter of cavorting with the RIC who would have been the natural enemy of the locals. Two members of the family survived the horrific attack; a nine-year-old boy, Patsy, who was badly injured, and his older brother Máirtín who was working for a family in a neighbouring farm on the night.
A GROUP of children in rural Louisiana, with little to do and not much to look forward to, befriend a criminal on the run, known only as 'The Man', but who the children come to think is Jesus Christ returned to earth.
