Parish priest to replace Fr Boland 16.04.14

A PARISH priest has been appointed to replace Moville priest Fr Eugene Boland who resigned his duties in Omagh earlier this month.
Fr Kevin McElhennon has been appointed by Bishop Donal McKeown to replace Fr Boland in Cappagh parish. Fr Boland had returned to work in the parish after being cleared of indecent assault charges in 2012.
But senior clergy said it became clear that Fr Boland "needed more time" returning to ministry and his resignation was accepted.
Fr McElhennon, a former administrator and media spokesperson at St Eugene's Cathedral, is seen by Cappagh parishioners as a popular choice. He has worked in the parish for almost ten years and is also a hospital chaplain in the Tyrone area.
It is understood Fr Boland may now take some time out in his native Inishowen.
