However, in line with Government and H.S.E advice regarding public gatherings, a small private funeral will be held. The Macken family would ask that over the coming days, everyone who knew him would take some time to light a candle or say a prayer in his memory.

Fr Joseph's family understand and appreciate that people would like to offer their condolences, we would suggest you use the on-line condolence page.
