Joe Gough RIP

Joe Gough RIP

We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Fr. Joe Gough, a great missionary priest and a former pupil of Rockwell. We remember that time was largely spent in dedication to those less fortunate than he, and was a testament to both the integrity of his character and the extent of his generosity. 

Fr. Joe was heavily involved in the educational sector in Gambia, serving as Director of Vocations in St.Michaels Seminary there, and later served as head of St.Augustine's College in Banjul. Even in his later years, having returned to Ireland, and suffering from poor health, the spirit of charity and community service was always apparent in his work. He will be dearly missed by all here at the college and beyond, having touched so many lives in his travels.


Our deepest sympathies are extended to his brothers Con and Richard, his sisters Mary and Claire, and all of his close friends and relations.
