One priest only to be ordained in Ireland

Ireland has a vocations crisis. It’s so bad that more new bishops will be ordained in Ireland this year than new priests. Next Sunday, Archbishop Michael Neary will ordain Rev Shane Costello to the priesthood for the Archdiocese of Tuam at Knock Basilica, Co Mayo, bu that will be the only ordination this year for the country’s 26 dioceses.
