With sadness we have learned of the death of Canon Sean Michael Kearney in Bantry Hospital, West Cork, on Friday evening. He died peacefully with his family present. He retired from ministry within the Diocese in 2001 following illness and had been living in retirement in his native Ireland.
Our thoughts are with his family at this time and with the people in the parishes where he served. Please remember him in your prayers.
His body will be received in to St. Bernadette’s Church, Clogher Road, Cork at 5pm on Monday 18th July. His Funeral Mass will take place on Tuesday 19th July at 10am followed by committal at Mount Jerome Cemetery.
May he rest in peace.
