The Chairman of the Committee Tony Keogh thanked everybody who helped in any way to make the Function such a success and everybody was happy that the money raised was going to Milford Hospice, where Father Browne spent his final weeks.

He said, “ It is a great tribute to the esteem in which Father Browne was held that so many people turned up to the Function considering it is over 50 years since he first came to the 
Parish.”
