In our March 2022 issue of Africa Magazine, which subscribers have received over the past few days, we feature an article by Fr Joe Archibong about Sean Cullen Park in Ijebu Imusin in Ogun State, Nigeria. The sports ground was named after Fr Sean Cullen, from Co Wexford, Ireland. Fr Sean worked in Nigeria for over 50 years and his work involved the building of the Society’s Formation House there which included the sports ground. It is over twenty years since the building was complete and the sports grounds are still in use today by St Patrick’s students and by local teams and youths.
On the 22nd of May 2012 the sports grounds were blessed and renamed Sean Cullen Park in honour of Fr Sean Cullen’s ministry and work in Nigeria. To watch the ceremony, click on the link given below.
