UPDATE: Clarification on funeral of much-loved priest Fr James Byrne

Fr James Byrne RIP

The funeral of Fr James Byrne will now go ahead.

Stranorlar Parish issued the announcement, after an earlier communication that the funeral had been postponed.

Australian native Fr Byrne died suddenly on Friday. He had been living in the Twin Towns area since his retirement seven years ago. The late priest was hugely popular with parishioners in Stranorlar and Kilteevogue parishioners and will be very much missed.
