The ‘Quay’ to Ireland’s Preachers


Pope’s Quay in Cork has been the Novitiate house for the Order of Preachers in Ireland (The Dominicans) for the best part of ninety years and it recently welcomed four new men as novices: Brothers Philip, Desmond, Sean and Mark. The Novitiate is the first step on one’s journey towards priesthood with the Dominicans.

“Their year in St Mary’s will be a time for deepening their relationship with God, finding out more about the Irish Dominicans, the Order’s spirituality and mission, and discerning their vocation to Dominican Religious Life,” commented their Novice Master Fr. Philip Mulryne.
