CiNews:Country’s youngest priest ordained for Killaloe diocese

Below is an excerpt from on article by CiNews about the ordination of Fr Ger Jones.

“The diocese of Killaloe is celebrating its second ordination in as many months following the ordination of Fr Ger Jones at Saint Flannan’s cathedral in Ennis by the Bishop of Killaloe Bishop Kieran O’Reilly SMA.

Fr Jones, who at twenty-eight is the country’s youngest priest, began his studies in Maynooth shortly after graduating with a degree in computer science from the University of Limerick in 2004.  Fr Jones was educated at Killaloe Boys NS and Saint Anne’s Community College.

He studied at the Irish College in Rome from 2007 and has already held pastoral placements in Ennis and Birr.  He is the second ordination in the diocese of Killaloe this year following the ordination of Fr Ger Fitzgerald (31) in June.

Fr Fitzgerald is now working in the parish on Ennis.”
