Very Reverend Seamus L. Gallagher R I P


We were very sad to hear that our beloved Fr Seamus

 

died at University Hospital, Galway, on Wednesday

 

evening, after a brave battle with illness these past few

 

months. Fr Seamus was a native of Killybegs, born 6th

 

October 1933. He was ordained priest in Newry on 7th

 

April 1957 for the Society of African Missions.

 

He worked in Ondo Diocese, Nigeria, 1957-1983.

 

He served as a Curate in Donegal Town 1983-1984,

 

Ballyshannon 1984 -1989 and Milford 1989-1996.

 

He was incardinated into the Diocese of Raphoe in 1987.

 

Fr Seamus was appointed Parish Priest of Glenswilly in

 

1996 where he served until his retirement in 2007.

 

After retirement, he returned to his native Killybegs

 

where he was Chaplain to Killybegs Community

 

Hospital. May he rest in the peace of Christ
