Tuam celebrates ordination of ‘one of their own’

ARCHBISHOP Neary presents the chalice to Gerard Quirke.

IN GLORIOUS sunshine on the Feast of Corpus Christi, Tuam celebrated the ordination of an man who Archbishop Michael Neary proudly described as “one of their own.” Gerard Quirke from Parkview Drive was ordained on Sunday June 3 and celebrated his first Mass in the Cathedral of the Assumption on Monday at 7.30 pm.
Father Quirke is the son of the late Ann and Gerry Quirke. He was joined at his ordination by his brother Joseph, his sisters Christina, Caroline and Carmel along with a packed congregation of extended family members, friends, neighbours and well-wishers.
His sister Teresa, who died late last year, was fondly remembered on the occasion.
