Bishop Brennan’s Golden Jubilee

By Dan Walsh

On the 15th (liturgical) anniversary of the announcement of his appointment as Bishop of Ferns in 2006, a presentation was made to Bishop Denis Brennan at the Ash Wednesday Mass in St Aidan’s Cathedral, Enniscorthy, to belatedly mark the occasion of his golden jubilee as a priest of the diocese of Ferns.

Speaking at the small ceremony, which was held in accordance with Covid-19 restrictions, Monsignor Joe McGrath paid tribute to Bishop Brennan for his work over the years as priest and Bishop.

The presentation to Bishop Brennan was of a bronze representation of The Last Supper by Irish artist Fergus O’Farrell.  

Last May, Bishop quietly celebrated his golden jubilee (31st May 1970) with a congregation of 10 people in Rathnure Church, the location of his first Mass on June 1st, 1970.
