Fr. Pat was from Barnacarroll, near Claremorris, in Co. Mayo. He was born on 20 July 1923, and so was just eleven days short of his 93rd birthday. He was professed as a Redemptorist on 3 October 1943 in Dundalk; he was ordained priest 27 August 1950, in Cluain Mhuire, Galway.
Fr. Pat spent all his life as a Redemptorist in Ireland, giving parish missions the length and breadthof the country. He spent some years in Clonard Monastery, in Belfast, and was in charge of the Men’s Confraternity there when the ‘Troubles’ broke out in August 1969. He worked a great deal in the Gaeltacht areas of the West of Ireland,
May he Rest in Peace
