Posted on Updated on

It was with great shock and disbelief that the news of the sudden death of Fr. Michéal Mannion, PP, Clonbur was announced on the evening of Saturday, March 5th, 2016.

As a parish community we extend our deepest sympathies to Fr Mícheál’s family, the parishioners of Clonbur, Archbishop Michael and all the priests of the diocese and his friends, especially two of his very close friends, our PP, Fr Denis Carney and Balla native, Fr Fergal Cunnane PP, Dunmore.
