Death of Fr. Michael Browne, C.Ss.R. Sept. 5, 2013.

The death has occurred today, Sept. 5th at c. 4.30am, in Belfast of a dearly-loved Redemptorist priest, Fr. Michael Browne. Fr. Michael was ordained in Cluain Mhuire by Bishop Michael Browne, in 1961. The day of his ordination co-incided with Down’s first (?) All Ireland Football Success. The victorious team remained on in Dublin on the Monday, until Fr. Michael joined them after his First Mass in Galway; Michael had been class-mates of quite a few of the team, in their days in St. Colman’s College, Newry, and was a great footballer himself. They wanted to celebrate both events, together.

Fr. Michael Browne worked most of his priestly life in Belfast,- in St. Clement’s Retreat House, and later in Clonard Monastery in the early 1970′s in some of the worst days of ‘The Troubles’. He later spent some years in Cluain Mhuire Galway, from about 1976 to the early 80′s, as Vocations Director.
