What a shock hear this sad news. Rest in peace Fr Mckiernan. Lovely memories of so many visits to our home. Benny was his co-pilot for many trips. He was always rewarded with a big steak on the way home. A wonderful priest and great leader. Will be sadly missed.

Sincere sympathy to Fr. Fintan's family on the death of a wonderful priest. I will never forget him for the help he gave me when my brother died suddenly in London, helping me to arrange his home coming and to be laid to rest in Derrylin. And all the visits he made to my late mother in Law before she passed away. May they all rest in peace.
