  1. Very sad to hear of fr Willie’s death….a gentle giant, rest in peace

  2. Prayers and sympathy to Fr. Matt, Jimmy , Christy, Pat, Rita and Bridget at this difficult time of Fr. Williams’s death. Condolences to all his nieces, nephews, relatives, neighbours and many friends in Skreen/Dromard and Florida. May he rest in peace . I expect a wonderful family reunion in heaven has taken place already with his parents, brothers, sisters, in-laws and all who have gone there before him …”in iothlainn Dé go gcastar sinn”.
