Enda mum funeral priest dies

A priest who was one of the concelebrants at the funeral mass for the Taoiseach's mother, Eithne Kenny, on Monday has died suddenly.

Parish priest of Knock, Co Mayo, Monsignor Joe Quinn, was aged 65.

Monsignor Quinn, a native of Castlebar, was appointed parish priest in Knock nine years ago.

In a tribute yesterday evening, the Archbishop of Tuam, Dr Michael Neary said Monsignor Quinn was widely known for his generosity and kindness especially to pilgrims and fellow clergy and would be greatly missed.
