RESPONDS TO THE NEWS OF THE RETIREMENT OF ARCHBISHOP ROBIN EAMES

In response to Archbishop Robin Eames’ announcement at the Church of Ireland

Seán Brady said:

“On my appointment as Coadjutor Archbishop of Armagh in 1995, I remember the warmth
of the welcome of Archbishop Robin Eames and his wife Christine. We have met and
worked together many times over the years – often through difficult years. I am
deeply grateful for his support, advice and friendship.

“Over these years Archbishop Eames has provided wise, steady and confident leadership
to the Church of Ireland, both on the national and international scene. His calm and
dignified counsel, his compassionate and resolute foresight and his caring understanding
have reassured many in the midst of turmoil and trouble.

“I wish Archbishop Eames, Christine and their sons Niall and Michael, every good
wish and blessing for the future.”
