10th February 2014
Our confrère, Br Michael, passed away peacefully at the University Hospital in Limerick this afternoon.
He celebrated his 87th birthday in hospital last week.
Born in Dublin’s Liberties area on February 5th 1927, he professed his first vows at Glenstal on May 10th 1953.
We celebrated his Diamond Jubilee with him last May.
Br Michael served as Guestmaster and in other hospitality roles in the monastery for many years and was renowned for his generous welcome and his deep interest in people.
We pray that the heavenly Guestmaster may now welcome him home. Requiscat in pace.
