Father Jack of Craggy Island has taken leave of this world to consult God on what he referred as a ‘Feck, arse, ecumenical matter’ 

Well wishers have been commenting on twitter with tributes such as:

‘He could have been pope you know’

‘He always a liked a good drink’

and

‘I hope they have girls in the big parochial house in the sky’

He is survived by Mrs Doyle and Father Dougal McGuire
