Fr Liam Hayes SVD founded homes in Argentina for some of the world’s most forgotten people.
Fr Liam Hayes SVD, Independent Senator Rónán Mullen has paid tribute to Limerick-born missionary Fr Liam Hayes who died in Argentina on Sunday. 65-year-old Fr Hayes, from Cappamore, was the founder and administrator of several Cheshire Homes for children and adults with severe physical and intellectual disability in Oberá, Argentina.
Senator Mullen worked at the homes for a brief period as a volunteer in 2004.
“Fr Liam Hayes was a remarkable person whose kindness and concern for some of the world’s most forgotten people made a powerful impact on all those he knew and worked with,” Senator Mullen said in a statement on Monday. After studies in UCC where he was Student Union President, Fr Hayes went to Maynooth and was ordained a priest for the Divine Word Missionaries.
In the mid-1980s, he travelled to Argentina to do parish work in the province of Misiones in North-Eastern Argentina, where he would spend the rest of his life.
