Fr. John Hannon, Kilmacanearla, who served as a priest of the Diocese of Sacramento for nearly sixty two years, died on 5th June at 87yrs of age. He was ordained on June 12th, 1955 at the Cathedral in Thurles. Along with ministering in many different parishes in Sacremento, he served as Catholic Chaplain to the U.S. Navy at Hamilton Air Force Base from 1987 - 1990. He retired from active ministry on 15th June, 2004, but continued to serve as administrator in several parishes in the diocese. We offer our sympathies to his nephews the Butlers, Pat Tom, Mike, Tony and Ger and Eamon Houlihan, also his nieces Bernie Sheehan and Mary Walsh.
