Niall O’Riordan: Ordination and First Mass – On behalf of the people of Thurles, the Parish Pastoral Council would like to extend our heartiest congratulations and warmest wishes to Niall O’ Riordan who will be ordained to the Priesthood in Rome next Friday December 8th. Niall will be ordained into the Order of the Family of Mary and our prayers go with him as he embarks on a new life of Ministry. We congratulate his parents, Dan and Imelda, and his brothers and sister on this joyous occasion. Niall will celebrate his First Mass in Thurles on Sunday, January 14th at 12 noon in the Cathedral. On this special occasion it would be wonderful to see the parish out to support Niall as a newly ordained priest.
