Since the election of the present Bishop to the see of Killaloe, in the
1839, the total number of appointments made by his Lordship has been 53. Of
these 33 were clergymen who had been curates in the diocess before the Bishop
had any connexion with it, or the slightest acquaintance with any of the
parties. The Bishop has promoted thirty-six clergymen since he came into the
diocess; of those twenty-three were curates before 1839; nine were curates
appointed since that period, but independent of the Bishop; four were introduced
into the diocese by his lordship.
The Rev. Richard Wilson, A.B., T.C.D., recently ordained at Castle-Connell
church, by his Lordship, has been on a visit to the Lord Bishop of Killaloe of
Clarisford house, before entering on his duties as curate of Clonligad.
The livings of Ballydnoher and Rathcooney, void by the death of the Rev. W.
Beaufort, and valued at 530l., a year, are in the gift of the Bishop of Cork.
Archibald Henry Mooney, B.A., T.C.D., was admitted to the order of
Priesthood, on Sunday, by the Lord Bishop of Peterborough.
At the close of the Divinity Examination in Trinity College, the Elrington
