Obituary for Fr. Ned

On Friday , May 24th the death took place of Fr. Ned Corridan , a son of Knockmaol and more recently of Killarney. Fr. Ned was ordained in Maynooth in 1952 and spent a few years in Salford , England before taking up a short few appointments in Moyvane , Ballybunion , Tousist & Tralee.

In 1957 he was appointed to the staff at St Brendan’s College, Killarney where he remained until 1974. Many students will remember Fr. Ned as a Greek teacher. He had a great interest in the classics of Greek & Latin and was well versed in the writings of Homer.

In 1974, Fr. Ned was appointed as curate to Ballylongford Parish where he served for nine years, before crossing the County bounds to Millstreet where he served for thirteen years. He then had two short spells in Firies and Kenmare before his retirement in 2005.

Fr Ned was well respected as a tireless worker. He was diligent about home visitations, care of the housebound and visitation to Primary schools. His hobby was walking and he covered many miles every week. While he was a serious classical scholar, he had a way with words and a great sense of humour. He was a very sincere and dedicated priest and he will be remembered for his kindness and thoughtfulness in the Diocese of Kerry for fifty three years.

Removal of Fr. Ned’s remains took place on Sunday, May 26th to St Brigid’s Church, Duagh. Requiem mass was celebrated on Monday at 12 noon, with burial afterwards in Springmount Cemetery , Duagh…the resting place of his parents and hundreds of Corridans before him. He is survived by his sister Peg and younger brother Tom (who resides in England) as well as his nieces and nephew and extended family
