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
