Fr Michael Keane


Sir, - It gave me great pleasure to read of the "pardoning" of Fr Michael Keane by the diocese of Dublin (The Irish Times, December 11th). I served Mass for Fr Michael as a young boy in the parish of Kilkerrin (diocese of Tuam). He was a man "before his time", forward thinking, caring and passionate about his "flock". I sincerely hope the Tuam diocese will now also see fit to apologise to this man of God. - Yours, etc.,

Tom Monaghan, Greystones, Co Wicklow.
