This portrait of Most Reverend Dr. Collier DD, Bishop of Ossory is a little reminder of how much has changed in Ireland over the centuries. Ferns, Ossory, Cashel even Armagh while once centres of great influence are today very much smaller centres with a long history. Most of us would have difficulty even locating Ossory the Bishop was obviously pleased to be there and the Man in Charge!

    Patrick Collier (13 January 1880 – 10 January 1964). " ... It was announced on 18 May 1923 that Collier was to be made coadjutor Bishop of Ossory and he received episcopal ordination several months later on 5 August 1928 in St Mary's Cathedral, Kilkenny. The ageing Bishop Abraham Brownrigg died several months later at the age of 92 and Collier automatically succeeded him. ...

    Aha! The catalogue says circa 7 June 1930 which was a Saturday. And the photos were at Sion House, Kilkenny.

    A coadjutor bishop is an assistant to an elderly bishop who will automatically succeed on the death or retirement of the bishop.

    So he was made bishop and coadjutor in August 1928, then bishop in October 1928. I wonder what was the occasion for these portraits in 1930?

    “Bishop Patrick Collier, catholic bishop of Ossory (1928–64), visited the collieries in December 1932 and preached on the evils of communism in Moneenroe chapel, where he denounced the RWG and its advocates as agents of the devil. Later came the formal denunciation in a pastoral letter issued by Bishop Collier in the unseasonable month of January. Claiming that Soviet agents were posturing as labour leaders, he made it clear that one could not be a communist and a catholic at the same time. He solemnly proclaimed the edict of the church: ‘Wherefore it is my duty to tell my people plainly that the Revolutionary Workers' Group, also all and every local union, cell or “contact” which is Communistic in aim and object has come under the ban and censure of the Church’ (Bishop Collier's pastoral letter, archives of St Kieran's College, Kilkenny). Exhorting the miners to join the ITGWU, a ‘lawful union for Catholics’, Collier's fierce reaction silenced the radicals and broke the RWG” www.dib.ie/index.php/biography/boran-nicholas-nixie-a0788

    In this 2018 shot of the episcopal ordination of Dermot Farrell as bishop of Ossory, you can see that he is wearing a ring, but not one with a honking great stone like Collier's, it looks like a wide gold band. flic.kr/p/23KFKEp
