Remembering Deceased Priests

During the week the graves of priests buried beside Kilmovee Parish Church were cleaned, re-lettered and re-chipped.  It seems an appropriate time to remember these men, and other priests who ministered in the parish and are now gone to their Eternal Reward.

It might be a good time to recall their names, alongside a prayer:

  • Monsignor O’Hara, R.I.P. (1924)
  • Canon Martin Henry, R.I.P. (1939)
  • Canon W.E. Flynn, R.I.P. (1943)
  • Canon Felix Burke, R.I.P. (1951)
  • Fr Tom Lynch, R.I.P. (1993)

and our parish native:

  • Fr Tom Freyne, R.I.P. (2013)

There are some former priests of the parish buried within the church who died in the late 1800’s:

  • Fr T. Mullaney, R.I.P.
  • Archdeacon Coghlan, R.I.P.
  • Fr J. Barrett, R.I.P.

We pray for these priests and for all priests who ministered in the parish and are buried elsewhere.  May God who begun the good work in them.
