Our brother Noel died peacefully in the Hospice in Blackrock this afternoon at 15.15. Noel was transferred to the Hospice on Tuesday of last week and he spent the last days surrounded by care, compassion and companionship. Michael Irwin and myself, along with quite a few of Noel’s brothers and sisters, and his good friend Fr. John Guiney SJ, were with him when he died. May his good soul rest in peace.
Noel was born on 17-12-1952; First Consecration on 12-09-1974; Ordination on 10-06-1978.
