History

The bishopric is a union of the episcopal sees of Waterford and Lismore which were united by Pope Urban V in 1363. Following the English Reformation, there were parallel successions. In the Church of Ireland, the see continued until 1833 when it was merged with the archbishopric of Cashel. In 1838,the Anglican diocese of Cashel lost its metropolitan status and was named the bishopric of Cashel and Waterford.It was further united with the dioceses of Ferns and Ossory.

In the Catholic Church, the title still continues. The Incumbent is the Most Reverend William Lee, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Waterford and Lismore, who was appointed by the Holy See on 27 May 1993 and ordained bishop on 25 July 1993.[1]
