Most people in Ireland associate the name of Olympian John Jermyn, Jnr with Cork Church of Ireland Hockey Club, and as Ireland’s record goal scorer in hockey. First capped at senior level for the Irish Men’s Hockey Team in 2002, and with more than 90 goals under his belt, as well as 177 caps notched up playing for his country, John C. Jermyn has now responded to a call-up of a totally different kind.
The Bishop of Cork, Cloyne and Ross, Dr Paul Colton, has appointed John as Assistant Diocesan Registrar in the United Dioceses, a position John has willingly accepted. John was educated at St Luke’s National School, Douglas, Cork, Ashton School, Cork and at University College Cork. He is a solicitor with the firm of RDJ, Ronan, Daly, Jermyn Solicitors. He will work as Assistant Diocesan Registrar alongside his father, John L. Jermyn, thus following in the steps, not only of his father, but also of his grandfather and great-grandfather, all of whom served the United Dioceses in this capacity.
