It was a shock to hear of the unexpected death of Michael Fitzpatrick on Monday morning. He was as usual in church in St John’s Cathedral last Sunday, but was taken ill that evening and died the following day in Sligo University Hospital. Michael played a huge part in the life of Calry as a Warden and member of Select Vestry for many years. He was also very instrumental in the establishment of the Catacombs. Dear Anne is a much loved member of the church as are Deborah (his granddaughter), Niall and Ivy Davitt. We send our condolences to them and to his daughters and sons-in-law, Elaine and Stuart Barker and Trudi and Dean Arfon Williams.
