George Otto Simms (4 July 1910 – 15 November 1991) was an archbishop in the Church of Ireland. He was born at Combermore House in Lifford, County Donegal, in the west of Ulster in Ireland. He also attended the Prior School in Lifford for a time. He went on to study at Trinity College, Dublin, after having attended Cheltenham College, a public school in the United Kingdom. From from 1969 to 1980, he served as Archbishop of Armagh. He was a scholar, and published research on the history of the Church of Ireland and on the Book of Kells. He was also a fluent speaker of the Irish language. Alongside Cardinal William Conway, Simms chaired the first official ecumenical meeting between the leaders of Ireland’s Protestant Churches and the Catholic Church in Ballymascanlon Hotel, Dundalk, Co. Louth on 26 September 1973, an important meeting amidst the increasing violence in Northern Ireland. The meeting was protested by Ian Paisley. The Most Rev. Dr George Otto Simms is interred with his wife, Mercy Felicia née Gwynn (1915–1998), in the cemetery attached to St. Maelruain’s Church, Tallaght, County Dublin. (Wikipedia).
