Joe Kennedy, Honorary President, Ireland West Airport Passes Away

We are saddened at Knock Shrine to hear of the passing of Joe Kennedy, honorary President of Ireland West Airport.

Fr. Richard Gibbons, PP, Rector of Knock Shrine paid tribute to Mr. Kennedy:

” Joe Kennedy was proud of his Mayo roots and has left a lasting legacy in his homeplace through his vision and drive in the expansion of Ireland West Airport over the past 20 years.

Joe was a man of deep faith, with a strong devotion to Our Lady of Knock. He was always known to have a song ready for every occasion. He was a gregarious character, great company and he will be sadly missed. I extend my sincere sympathy to his wife Kathleen and his family in Mayo and Manchester.”
