'Irish Catholic' gets new editor
THE 'Irish Catholic' newspaper has appointed a new editor.
Michael Kelly (33), who has served as deputy editor since 2005, will take up his appointment with immediate effect.
The outgoing editor, Garry O'Sullivan, moves to the role of managing director. Mr O'Sullivan led a management buy-out of the company earlier this year.
Mr Kelly was a journalist with Vatican radio and Rome correspondent with the 'Irish Catholic' before returning to Dublin in 2005. He also writes for the Irish Independent and 'The Universe' in England.
"It is an honour to have been appointed editor of a newspaper with such a distinguished history," he said.
"There has arguably never been a more interesting time to be an Irish Catholic.
"I hope to build on the success of the paper by expanding further into the online and social media sphere."
