Fr Brendan (Nivard) McGlynn R.I.P.
It is with great sadness that we record the death of Fr Brendan (Nivard) McGlynn who died night, 21 February, a member of the community here at Nunraw Abbey. He had entered Mount St Bernard Abbey in 1952 and from there was sent as a founder member of Bamenda Abbey, Cameroon, in the 1960s. About 9 years ago, Fr Nivard came to Nunraw to produce choir books for Bamenda Abbey and the community at Nsugbe, Nigeria. Two years ago, he changed his stability to Nunraw and reverted to his baptismal name, Brendan.
We offer our condolences to his brother, our Fr Donald, and his four surviving sisters, Sisters Noreen, Mary, Josephine and Christina.
Fr Brendan’s funeral Mass will take place at Nunraw Abbey on Saturday, 25 February at 11.00am.
