Change at the Catholic Church

It was the funeral today of Father Tim Mahoney, long serving priest at St Joseph's Catholic church on Belmont Road. He died in Bronllys Hospital after a short illness.
It was a big funeral - they had awnings with chairs under for the overflow congregation on the grass at the front of the church, though it was such a beautiful sunny day that they hardly needed protection from the weather.
One rather confused visiting priest came into the shop to ask where the cattle market was, as it had been opened up as a car park for the funeral, and then needed directions to the church. The burial took place at Hay Cemetery.
So I assume that the local Roman Catholic bishop will need to appoint a new priest now.
