It is with sadness that we announced the retirement of Canon David Hutton Bury on Christmas Day 2017. David has been unwell for some time and will be unable to continue to carry out parish duties, as Priest-in-charge, of Geashill and Killeagh.

Talking of his retirement Bishop Pat Storey said: "David has been a tower of strength to many in Geashill and throughout the Diocese, and I know that I and all the other clergy, have greatly appreciated his pastoral concern for them and his kind words of encouragement. David has that great gift of encouragement and of leaving people feeling better about themselves, which is a rare ability." She continued: "The people of Geashill and Killeagh will miss David terribly and we all want to thank him, including myself, for his wonderful period of work and ministry in the parish and the great legacy he leaves for someone else to take on later in the year."

We wish David every blessing and hope and pray that his health improves.
