New Clerical Succession List Published
This morning at 11am in the Cathedral of St John the Baptist, Cashel, Clergy of Cashel and Emly, and Leighlin, complied by the Revd Ian Knox and Canon David Crooks, will be launched by the Dean of Cashel, Dr Philip Knowles.
This compilation expands and updates St John Seymour’s The parochial clergy in the united diocese of Cashel and Emly which was published in 1908 and publishes, for the first time, the biographical succession list of the clergy of Leighlin which had been compiled by Canon J.B. Leslie in 1939. The book will contain details of some 2,750 clergy, photographs of the churches and brief historical notes on the diocese and parishes. It has been published by the Ulster Historical Foundation in Belfast.
This is the twelfth volume in what has turned into a programme to publish and update the Canon Leslie’s clerical succession lists. The first, Clergy of Connor, published in 1993 by a diocesan committee in which the late Dean of Connor, the Very Revd Norman Barr, was a leading light, was followed in 1996 by a volume for Down and Dromore, compiled by largely the same team. Ian Knox has been responsible for Clergy of Waterford, Lismore and Ferns while David Crooks has been involved in volumes for Clogher, Derry & Raphoe, Kilmore, Elphin & Ardagh, Tuam, Killala & Achonry and Killaloe, Kilfenora, Clonfert & Kilmacduagh. In addition there have been volumes on Dublin & Glendalough and on Meath by Ronnie Wallace and on Armagh by Canon Ted Fleming.
