It is with sadness that I advise you of the death yesterday of Fr Sean O’Shea, a retired priest of the Diocese who lived in Ireland for a number of years.
Fr O’Shea was assistant priest in St Athanasius’ in Carluke from 1949 to 1952, following which he was assistant priest at St Patrick’s in Wishaw until 1959. From 1959 until 1975 he was a Forces Chaplain and on his return to the diocese in 1975 he was assistant priest in St Isidore’s in Biggar. Fr O’Shea returned to Ireland in 1977 where he was parish priest in Bere Island in Co. Cork. He retired to live in Castletownbere in Co. Cork.
His funeral will be held in Sacred Heart Church in Castletownbere on Thursday at 11.00 am.
May the Lord who chose him to serve Him as a priest,
number him among his chosen in heaven.
Requiescant in Pace
