A gathering took place today to welcome home Archbishop Eugene Nugent Papal Nuncio to Kuwait and Qatar and to celebrate Fr John Bane’s Golden Jubilee. Archbishop Eugene’s first parish was Ennis Cathedral as a curate in 1984 where he worked with Canon Brennan O’ Donoghue, Fr Joe Hourigan, and Fr John Bane. The other member of the team remembered today was the late Canon Pat Taaffe.
