Chapter appointments in the Diocese of Clogher

The Bishop of Clogher, the Right Revd John McDowell, has announced two appointments to the Chapter of Clogher Cathedral.

The Bishop made the following prebendal appointments.

The Revd Canon David Skuce, Rector of Inishmacsaint and previously Prebendary of Kilskeery, is to be Chancellor and the Revd Canon Henry Blair, Rector of Magheraculmoney and previously a Canon without a prebendal stall, is to succeed to the prebend of Kilskeery.

Announcing the appointments, the Bishop of Clogher said: “I am delighted to be in a position to make these appointments to the Chapter of the Cathedral. Chancellor Skuce is the longest serving member of the Cathedral Chapter as well as being a son of the Diocese and he now holds this most senior appointment.

“Like Chancellor Skuce, Canon Henry Blair is involved in many aspects of the work of the Diocese as well as being incumbent of a busy parish and his appointment to a prebendal stall with a voice and vote on the Chapter is an important recognition of his contribution as a senior member of the clergy,” added Bishop McDowell.
