Fr. Kevin Mullan: Who was he
Fr. Kevin, who previously served as the secretary and later as the chairperson of Derry Feis, had paid his regular Easter visit to the event a few weeks before his passing.
When newly ordained as a priest at St. Patrick’s in Pennyburn, he was asked to succeed the late Fr. Willie McGaughey, which marked the beginning of his association with the feis. Fr. Kevin’s background as an Irish dancer who had competed in the feis made him an ideal candidate for the position of feis secretary.
In November 2020, Fr. Kevin Mullan, the parish priest of Drumquin, announced his retirement. He was widely recognized and respected for his ecumenical and intercommunity efforts, and he provided care and support to individuals affected by the Market Street bombing in 1998.
Fr. Mullan regarded his decision to leave the parish as “sad” but appreciated the warm hospitality the local community had shown him throughout his many years of residence, as he expressed in the parish newsletter.
