Rest in Peace

Sincere sympathy is extended his brother Paddy, nephews, nieces, grandnieces and grandnephews of the late Fr Tommy Leahy (RIP), Sologheadbeg, who passed away on Wednesday, May 23.


Fr Tommy who was a past pupil of Newtown NS later went on to spend many years as a very devout St Patrick's Missionary priest in Kenya, Malawi and Grenada and in his final years in the parish of Ballinaheglish Co.Roscommon.


A great GAA man Fr Tommy took a keen interest in all Tipperary and Sologhead GAA affairs and could be seen at any hurling match of note in West Tipp.


Following his funeral mass at the Missionary Society's St Patrick's Chapel in Kiltegan Co. Wicklow on Saturday last, interment took place in the Society Cemetery. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dhilis.
