Bishop Denis’ statement on the death of Fr John Cummins

It is with deep regret and sadness I announce the sudden death of Fr John Cummins, PP Abbeyleix after a freak accident with his car at the Parochial House.

My thoughts and prayers are with Fr John’s mother, brothers and sister, his priest colleagues in Kildare and Leighlin, his team in Faith Development Services and ACCORD, Carlow and of course his many parishioners in Abbeyleix.

Also remembering his former colleagues in IT Carlow and parishioners of Carlow Cathedral Parish.

John is a tremendous loss to all of us in the Diocese. I will hold all of you in my prayers over these very difficult and lonely days.

+ Denis Nulty
Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin
