It was a momentous weekend for local man Damien Quigley after he was ordained to the priesthood in his home church, the Holy Redeemer in Ard Easmuinn.

While most of the country’s attention was fixed on Ireland v France on Sunday, for the Cedarwood Park man there was another big kick-off to focus on as a new chapter in his life began.

Damien joined the seminary in Maynooth in 2010.

A former student of Coláiste Rís, Damien studied in both Dundalk IT and Queen’s University where he graduated with a degree in science.

He then went on to work for Tesco for 12 years where he reached a senior management position, overseeing a number of stores in the South Dublin area.

A love of the church prompted the now 41-year-old to seek to join the priesthood – a dream which he fulfilled at the weekend

The new Fr Damien Quigley then celebrated his first Mass of Thanksgiving last night in the Church of the Holy Redeemer.

Damien is the youngest son of Tommy and Majella ‘Solo’ Quigley, who he is pictured with above, along with other family members.
