Catholic Chaplains in WW2

21Nov

The work of fearless Catholic Chaplains during World War 1 will be the theme of Kerry Archaeological and Historical Society’s  end of season Lecture in Killarney Library on Tuesday 21st November next at 7.30pm. Mallow- based author and historian Canon Gerard Casey will explore the extraordinary War Front ministry of this group of daring priests including some Kerry men. Among them was Killarney native Fr. Donal O’Sullivan who was killed in the Battle of the Somme during July 1916. Fr. Donal left his teaching post in St. Brendan’s Seminary to serve his fellow countrymen in the green fields of France where he is laid to rest. Fáilte roimh cách.
