He was ordained on 4 August 2013 by Archbishop Diarmuid Martin. Upon his ordination, Nulty became the youngest bishop in Ireland, succeeding Archbishop Eamon Martin by two years. In light of the Government decision to hold a referendum on gay marriage in 2015, Bishop Nulty said in November 2013 said there is always a necessity to treat homosexuals with compassion. He added that the very nature of marriage and children and their importance to society is worth protecting. He said: "The Catholic Church will continue to hold that the differences between a man and woman are not accidental to marriage but fundamental to it and that children have a natural right to a mother and a father and that this is the best environment for them where possible."
