Late Bishop Martin Drennan remembered for his “bright mind” and love of Galway


Bishop Martin Drennan has been remembered by his brother Fr Michael Drennan for his bright mind, sense of humour and love of Galway.

Retired Bishop of Galway Martin Drennan passed away at the age of 78 last weekend and his funeral took place today.

Mourners gathered at Galway Cathedral to celebrate his life, including bishops and priests from across the country, Mayor of Galway Clodagh Higgins, TDs and Senators.

Words of condolence also came from as far away as the Vatican, as Pope Francis passed on a message for Bishop Drennan.

The funeral service was opened by Bishop Michael Duignan, with music by the Galway Cathedral Choir and Homily delivered by Fr Michael Drennan.
