Celebrating 120 Years of Priesthood   On 21st February 1959 at different ceremonies in Rome, two young men, one from Tipperary, the other from Galway were ordained to the priesthood. Willie Walsh was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Killaloe. Cletus Noone was ordained a Franciscan Priest; sixty years later these two men find themselves in ministry in Ennis. Bishop Willie as Bishop Emeritus and Fr. Cletus as a member of the Ennis Franciscan Fraternity. 
Bishop Willie has lived almost all of his priesthood in Ennis serving as Teacher, Priest and Bishop. 
Fr. Cletus has served in different Friaries and in best known for St. Anthony’s Novena each Tuesday and his weekly Radio Show on a Saturday night on Clare FM. As both men give thanks for the blessings of the last sixty years, we join with them in thanking God for blessing us with two great priests. We wish both Bishop Willie and Fr. Cletus continued blessings, for good health and many more years.
