sympathy Enda and the Murphy family on Fr Tommy's death. Go ndéana Dia trócaire ar a anam
He was a truly lovely and sincere person, who will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him....
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time.
There was never a more proud Columban Father than Fr Tommy, when he marched his schoolmate from St Gerald’s and Taoiseach from Castlebar, across the Ponte Vecchio in Bobbio, Italy in June 2013, to visit the tomb of St Columbanus and to prepare for the 1,400 th anniversary of his death in 2015. The entire town knew the head of the Columban Fathers was there.!
Met Fr Tom in Taiwan, in Singapore and at home. Truly dedicated to his vocation.
