TKA Advent Carols and Installation of Canons

The annual TKA Service of Lessons and Carols for Advent was held in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, Killala on Sunday 9th December.

The liturgy was prepared and led by Revd Canon Jen McWhirter, Priest in Charge of Killala Union. Lessons were read by representatives of all the parishes in the Killala and Achonry end of the diocese. Music was provided by Daphne Higgins.


The Dean, Very Revd Alistair Grimason, preached and also, with the guidance of the Diocesan Registrar Mrs Audrey Shannon, installed two new Canons to the Chapter of Saint Patrick’s: Revd Canon Lynda Peilow ( Galway and Kilcummin ) to the Prebend Stall of Lackan and Revd. Canon Andrew Ison ( Ballysodare, Colooney and Ballymote ) to the Prebend Stall of Errew.

A truly superb supper was served after the service in the Cathedral for which all were most grateful.
