Statement from Bishop Brennan:

“It was with great sadness that I received news of Ronan’s passing this weekend.

Ronan was a genuine friend of many causes and organisations.

A wise and measured counsel, he made an invaluable and critical contribution to the diocese at crucial moments over many years and had the interests of all at heart.

My thoughts and prayers are with his wife Colette, his children and his close friends at this time of sudden loss.”
