I took up my post in the Diocese at the end of June 2015. Prior to that I was a parish priest in the Diocese of Coventry for over 12 years. Originally from the Republic of Ireland, I trained as a musician at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, and subsequently as a teacher. I have a long standing academic interest in the interface between theology and psychoanalytical theory.
To relax I enjoy the theatre, film, good food and drink, walking the dog … and Six Nations rugby!
