Another milestone: First-ever TLM by an official from the Papal Nunciature to the Philippines

From the blog of Acolythorum Fraternitas Sanctae Crucis:

Rev. Msgr. Seamus Patrick Horgan, the First Secretary of the Apostolic Nunciature in the Philippines, was invited to offer Mass according to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite last August 26, 2012 at the Baptistry Chapel of the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Pasig City. 
Msgr. Horgan is an Irish priest working for the diplomatic service of the Vatican City State.  He arrived in the Philippines on May 24, 2012.  He replaced Msgr. Giorgo Chezza. 
According to an article in the New Liturgical Movement website, "Monsignor Horgan, unknown to many perhaps, has celebrated in the Extraordinary Form previously in the Killaloe and Limerick dioceses. In 2003 he celebrated the Mass of the Latin Mass Society of Ireland's pilgrimage to the site of the little Ark in Kilbaha Co Clare. He also celebrated several Masses in St Patricks Church, Dublin Road, Limerick home of the Institute of Christ the King's Apostolate in the diocese of Limerick. He also celebrated a memorable Christmas Day Mass in the city in 2004 at the Mercy Convent Chapel at Mount St Vincents on O'Connell Avenue. Monsignor worked for a time in Roscrea before being transferred to the Apostolic Nunciature in Kampala, Uganda." He also worked in Apostolic Nunciature in Bern, Switzerland.
