In the most recent round of clerical changes in the Diocese of Kilmore, effective from Saturday, August 31, Fr Fagan was transferred to Knockbride Parish, Co Cavan, as Parish Priest, while Fr Sexton remained on as chaplain and teacher in St Clare's Comprehensive School, Manorhamilton, and became Administrator in Ballaghameehan Parish, in addition.

As a result of these latest changes, Killargue has no resident priest for the first time in nearly two hundred years.
