We offer our sympathies and our prayers to the family and parishioners of Monsignor Brian Halloran, President of the Scalan Association from 2002 to 2010, who died suddenly last Sunday evening, 1st March. May he rest in peace.
As President he was the driving force behind the successful efforts to acquire Sandy's house. This eventually led to the acquisition of the agricultural buildings in the vicinity and the surrounding land, all neatly delineated by the fence that encompasses the property.
Mgr Halloran's body is due to be received into Saint Mary, Star of the Sea, Constitution Street, Leith, EH6 6AW, tomorrow, Sunday 8 March, at 6.00pm, with his Funeral Mass on Monday at 12 noon.
