On Sunday 5th November, a service was held in Swanlinbar Parish Church to welcome the Revd Simon Donohoe as the new Minister–in–Charge of the Swanlinbar Group of Parishes (Swanlinbar, Kinawley, Tomregan and Templeport).

Simon was born and raised in South Dublin where he came to know the Lord Jesus through the ministry of Crinken Church and Crosslinks holiday clubs. He is married to Abigail and they have two daughters under three.

Simon trained at Oak Hill College in London but has always planned and prayed to return to Ireland. Whilst in England he served in churches in Wimbledon, Wilmslow, Wimsford and Cheadle.

In his spare time he enjoys running, reading and keeping up with the Irish rugby team and Premier League football.

We pray for God’s blessing on Simon and his family as they settle in their new home.
