Fr Patrick Burke , from Barnaderg, Tuam, Co Galway, was a priest of the Archdiocese of Tuam. He was serving in the parish of Westport and was pastoral coordinator of Inishturk and Clare Island in Co Mayo, when he died suddenly and unexpectedly of a cardiac aneurysm on the 25th June 2018. He was 38 years old. Since his Ordination in 2006, he had been appointed to Athenry, Castlebar, Knock and Westport. He was about to go take up a new appointment as Parish Priest of Carraroe in July 2018.
Fr Patrick was an avid amateur photographer and enjoyed taking snapshots of places he had been, capturing beautiful pictures of landscapes and seascapes, farm animals and ecclesiastical buildings. He is fondly remembered by all who knew him for his kind gentle and unassuming nature. This book has been compiled from images in his collection and proceeds will be donated to several nominated charitable organisations in his memory.
