Canon Andrew Orr was appointed an Honorary Canon in February 2020 under the provisions of a Statute passed in 2018 by the General Synod of the Church of Ireland. Honorary Canons are assigned areas of special responsibility. Bishop Colton, having consulted the Dean and Chapter, has assigned Canon Orr responsibility for helping the Diocese of focus on Climate Change and Ecology, in line with the fifth Mark of Mission of the Anglican Communion: ‘To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth.’

Canon Denis MacCarthy was appointed in November 2020 to succeed Canon Ian Jonas a Prebendary of Kilbrittain and Holy Trinity. He will also be Prebendary of Donoughmore in the Cathedral Church of Saint Colman, Cloyne where he will be installed in due course.
