Most of you will know by now that the great Fr Pat O'Connell left us last Monday. He will be a huge, huge miss to all those who knew him but he'll be in a happier place now.
He will be received into St Bernadette's church in Wallsend at 5 o'clock on Sunday 9th July and his requiem is at 12 Noon on Monday 10th July at our own St Michael's, Westmoreland Road. He will then be taken home to his beloved Cork for burial.
