And Baysie came too

10 May 2013

A former Bishop of Cork, Cloyne & Ross, the Rt Revd Roy Warke, has sent me a photograph of the annual reunion of retired bishops of the Church of Ireland, together with their wives, which recently took place at Julianstown, in Meath & Kildare diocese.

Ignoring all the accumulated wit and wisdom of the six other bishops (not to mention their wives), he tells me that "the interesting fact" is that the one-eyed Jack Russell terrier, Baysie, seen far right in the arms of the Revd Peter Rutherford, regularly attends daily matins with Mr Rutherford, who is the Rector of Julianstown. He was also present at the reunion eucharist.

It seems that Baysie lost his eye in a serious traffic accident, from which he has since recovered.
