 Welcome Father Terry

I was born in Omagh, Co. Tyrone in 1926 and joined the missionary society known then as the Maynooth Mission to China in 1944. However I wasn’t sent to China but to the Philipines, where with ups and downs I spent 47 great years.
Lots of young Irish priests in those days went as ambassadors of the Lord to many countries.
I was invited by Fr. Sean Heaney to come over from the community of retired and ill old people and meet the people of Tullamore and I’m glad I accepted because all the people I have met are very welcoming.
