Bishop Burrows had this to say: “I have just spoken to Bishop Brennan and Bishop – designate Nash on the phone. I thanked the former for his friendship and warm courtesy over the last fifteen years, and assured the latter of the congratulations and prayers of Church of Ireland people in Ferns.

“Ferns has always been a beacon of ecumenical co-operation and shared vision and I look forward to working with Bishop Nash to ensure that this fine tradition continues,” concluded Bishop Burrows.
