THOUSANDS attended the Memorial Mass for Fr. Tommy O Hanlon in Tarbert on Saturday last, the chief celebrant was Fr James O Hanlon, brother of Tommy. The mass was concelebrated by about 30 priests, also attending were many sisters some who served abroad. The homily was given by Fr. Pat Raleigh of the Columban Fathers who told many little stories about Tommy including his love for sweet cake, justice for the small man and caring for the earth. We were told that his football days had a great influence on him even in the missions. Relations and friends of the O’Hanlon Family mingled with each other in lovely bright sunshine for a long time after Mass had ended, some called to the Presbytery for tea and cake while others later went to the Lanterns to meet and share their remembrances and praise a man who gave his life to the church and betterment of humanity.
