THE MORNING STAR AND CATHOLIC REGISTER 21ST JUNE, 1868 P3

With feelings of deep regret, says the Galway Vindicator, we record the demise of the Rev. John Lennon P.P., which sad event occurred on the 11th ult. at his residence, Ballinderreen. Father Lennon had been for a long period paster of the parish of Ballinderreen, and to his strenuous exertions are due the splendid repairs of the parish chapel, and the erection of a national school in the parish The school and chapel, also the residence of Father Lennon, are on the estate of Charles St. George, Esq., of Tyrone House, and to his unbounded liberality Father Lennon owed the restoration of the chapel, the erection of the national school and numerous other laudable works which have been completed through his instrumentality. We would draw the attention of the public to the friendly relations which existed between Mr St. George and the Rev. Mr Lennon and advise others of our landed proprietors to follow the example so noble set them by this highly popular gentleman. That he is one of the best – if not the best – of our western landlords, the absence of “notices to quit,” evictions, and their concomitant result – emigration – and the flourishing state of his tenantry, amply testify. We understand that the Rev. Mr Geoghegan, R.C.A., Kinvara, succeeds Father Lennon in the parish.
