Canon Michael Joyce, R.I.P.

Bishop Paul, on his own behalf and in the name of the Diocese of Achonry, is saddened to announce today the death of Canon Michael Joyce, PE.

Michael lived in Swinford since his retirement as Parish Priest of Bohola. Ordained in 1965, Michael began teaching in St Nathy’s College in 1966 and then for a year in Colaiste Padraig, Swinford before returning to St Nathy’s College. He served as Parish Priest in the parishes of Curry, Swinford and Bohola and was a much loved, resepected and spiritual pastor and priest. He will be sadly missed by all with whom he had contact during his many years of faithful ministry in our diocese.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and many friends, who will truly miss him.

Please remember Canon Michael in your prayers.
