Remembering Fr William Barden OP in Rathgar

This year the Dominican Order is 800 years old.

To mark the occasion, people in Rathger parish are undertaking a small project.

It is planned to find out in what house Fr William Barden was born and then, with the permission of the owner and in conjunction with Dublin City Council, to erect a simple plaque to honour the man.

Fr William was an Irish Dominican, born in 1908, grew up in Rathgar and attended CBS Synge Street. He was Archbishop of Isfahan in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
