Kildare parish celebrates Fr Mackey’s golden jubilee

There was a large turnout of parishioners, family and friends in Kilcullen Parish Centre, Co. Kildare for the celebration of Fr Niall Mackey’s golden jubilee.

Following a concelebrated Mass with Bishop Eamonn Walsh, Fr Martin Harte and Fr Eugene Rybansky from River Valley Parish, there was a reception in the parish centre where presentations were made to Fr Niall on behalf of the parish community and schools.

Many of his former parishioners at River Valley in Dublin came along to express their own good wishes to Fr Niall, who has been in Kilcullen since 2013 when he replaced Fr Michael Murphy.
