An t-Athair Peadar MacSuibhne

On the 1st April, 1982, An t-Athair Peadar MacSuibhne passed to his Eternal Reward. He will be sadly missed in the Old Carlow Society. He was a founder member of the Society and always took a great Interest in its activities. Rarely did he miss a Committee Meeting or a lecture and he was always ready to contribute to the discussions. On account of his wide knowledge of local history his views were always sought.

An t-Athair Peadar was unique in the way he was able to collect historical data. He was indefatigable where historical research was concerned. Luckily for posterity he compiled a number of books dealing with the history of various parishes which will be invaluable in years to come. His monumental volumes on the great Churchman, Cardinal Cullen, are outstanding. For a man of his years it was astonishing the amount of work he could accomplish. It is sad to think that the genial face of An t-Athair Peadar will no longer brighten our meetings.
We pray in the language he dearly loved — I bhFlaitheas Dé imeasc na Naomh go raigh a anam dilis.
