The death has occurred this evening (Wednesday 28th August) of Fr. Tony Coote, Administrator, Mount Merrion Parish.
Archbishop Diarmuid Martin expressed his sympathy to Father Coote’s mother, members of his family and all those who supported him during his long illness, especially his ever loyal priest friends.
Archbishop Martin said “Tony showed all of us how strength can be witnessed even in the face of human weakness. His courage and determination touched the hearts of people of all backgrounds. His courage leaves all of us more humble. May the Lord welcome and give him the deep peace to which he witnessed in his suffering.”
Funeral arrangements later.
May he rest in peace.
