The man to be the next Bishop of Meath, Tom Deenihan, has a wealth of experience in the field of education, having been a teacher, a diocesan education secretary and general secretary of the Catholic Primary School Managers Association.
"Catholic schools are most welcoming of people of different faiths. This is not a reason for maintaining patronage of most of the primary schools in the country, when more and more people want something else." – Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin
“Catholic education has played a key role in the integration of new communities into Ireland and is one of the most valuable things we have” – CPSMA
Board of CPSMA expresses its appreciation to Fr Tom Deenihan, who has been General Secretary for almost three years, and brought enormous energy and commitment to the role.
