BRUREE NOTES 20/9/2009


The news that Venerable Archdeacon Timothy Greene had died was received with great regret in Rockhill Bruree. Fr. Greene arrived in the parish in 1986, replacing the late Canon Joseph Moran. Having been ordained in 1949, he had served in St. Patrick’s, Mahoonagh, Abbeyfeale and Kilmallock as Curate and in Glenroe, and Ardpatrick as Parish Priest. Fr. Greene had spent time during the early years of his priesthood as Dean of St. Munchin’s College. He was made Canon in 1991 and Archdeacon five years later. Archdeacon Greene retired in 1998 and spent some time in the parish as Pastor Emeritus before going to St. Paul’s in Dooradoyle. During his time in Rockhill Bruree, Archdeacon Greene became involved in the parish community through the school and his support for various parish organisations but it will be for his dedication to the pastoral affairs in the parish that he will be best remembered. A deeply religious man, his many acts of kindness and charity were done without fanfare. The parish offers its deepest sympathy to his family, Bishop Murray and his fellow clergy.
