My name is Padraig Corcoran and I am a native of The Downs, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.
I take up my appointment here in Tullamore after leaving St. Finian's College, Mullingar where I worked as Director of Studies. I was also Chaplain to the Midland Regional Hospital in Mullingar. The positions I held there were my first in the diocese of Meath after my ordination in December 2004. Tullamore will be the first parish I will have worked in as a curate. There will be plenty of things I still have to learn and I do hope to do as best as I possibly can.
I am a keen follower of gaelic football, soccer and many other things. I play gaelic for my native club which is The Downs. I come from a large family of 8 children which I am second youngest.
Looking forward to getting to know you all in the Parish over the coming weeks and months.
