Dublin priest to visit for St. Patrick’s celebration

Untitled-1

David Williams

Born in Dublin, David Williams grew up in the Sutton/Howth area on the north shore of Dublin Bay. Upon leaving school David entered Trinity College with the intention of studying Geology. However, he moved to Canada to complete studies in mining at the Haileybury School of Mines in Northern Ontario, which is where he met Rosalynn. Some years later they were married. David’s career in mining included exploration work in Ireland and Canada as well as working at mines, again in Ireland and Canada. It was while he was working at Nanisivik in the Canadian High Arctic that he felt that it was time to stop putting off the idea of ordination! After having completed the invigilation procedure of the Church’s Advisory Council on Training for the Ministry David and Rosalynn returned to Ireland where he entered the Church of Ireland (Anglican) Theological College and Trinity College Dublin.

By this time the two had three daughters, Sarah, Sorcha and Jocelyn. Upon completion of his theological training David was Ordered Deacon for the Diocese of Kilmore which straddles the Border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Ordained Priest on his 40th Birthday in 1989. David served the remainder of his Curacy in that Diocese before being appointed as Rector of Kinsale in the Diocese of Cork. It was a great joy some years ago to welcome the Montserrat Choir to Kinsale. David has a keen interest in things Liturgical and in Celtic Spirituality.

Having retired last June from Kinsale David and Rosalynn now live in the West of Ireland near the village of Cong where the famous movie “The Quiet Man” was filmed. Indeed the church which they attend is the lovely little church which appears in that movie. So if you have seen that movie then you know where they live!

They are both very much looking forward to being part of the St. Patrick’s

Day celebration in Montserrat and meeting up again with Fr. George who they first met at a wedding over twenty five years ago.
