Death Notice: Rev. Thomas Dennehy

The Rev. Thomas Anthony Dennehy, a priest of the Archdiocese of Miami, was among the founders and builders of St. Brendan Catholic Church in Homestead (sic) and Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale.

“He was very much committed to education of youths,” said Msgr. Vincent Kelly, who worked with Dennehy at Cardinal Gibbons High for a few years.

Kelly, now supervising principal for St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, said Dennehy got personally involved.

“He helped in the physical construction itself,” Kelly said.

Dennehy died April 10 near his hometown in Glanmire, Ireland, of a heart attack. He was 65.

Born in Millstreet, County Cork, on April 11, 1934, Dennehy studied philosophy and theology at All Hallows College in Dublin. He was ordained a priest in 1958. From Ireland, he was assigned to the archdiocese in St. Augustine ; there was only one archdiocese at the time.

Dennehy’s first assignment was to teach at Christopher Columbus High in Miami. After that, he studied school administration at Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., where he received his master’s in education.

For 35 years, he served the archdiocese as a priest and educator. His first class at St. Brendan High started with approximately 400 students in 1975; by his retirement in 1993, the school had more than 1,100.

“He had tremendous conviction and influenced many young students, men and women who credit him for much of their success,” Kelly said.

Dennehy is survived by a brother, Denis, of Dublin, and a sister, Noreen Monaghan, of Melbourne, Australia.

Phil Walsh very kindly emailed us on Tuesday night (16th May 2017) to share the sad news that his father, Maurice, peacefully went to his Eternal Reward on Tuesday morning.   We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the Walsh Family (and all other relatives) at this challenging time on the very sad departure of dear Maurice, R.I.P. – a true gentleman of the very highest calibre and friend supreme of his native Millstreet. He has most certainly left his wonderful mark on the history of Millstreet especially in our Museum. So many know the name of Maurice Walsh a native of his beloved Dooneen beside Millstreet Railway Station. How magnificently generous he has been to Millstreet in his presenting of such treasured items such as the now famous Gramophone and “Dobo” – the Mobo Horse. These two items alone delight our many visitors national and international. May Maurice rest in peace as he joins his dear wife Eva (who died in January 2017) in their Heavenly Home.  Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamnacha dílse (May they both rest in peace).   Maurice loved to receive “Clara News” and constantly pictured Clara Mountain as he fondly remembered it from childhood.  He made available to Millstreet Museum the many books, photographs and historic items from the very impressive collection of the late Paddy Dillon.  He was also in regular phone communication with the Garvey Family and treasured the occasion when he met Joe Garvey at Millstreet Museum when he visited Millstreet for the funeral of his brother, John (Jack) who had given many wonderful years of dedicated service to CIE at Millstreet Railway Station.   Maurice was such a gifted gentleman in such areas as a craftsman supreme and a magnificent calligrapher.  Below we share a special 1980s image of the truly marvellous Couple.  It has been a great privilege to have known and met with Maurice and Eva both of whom have so enriched our lives.  (S.R.)
