Fr Patrick Sheehy was a saintly Salesian priest from Clonakilty, Co. Cork. He left Ireland after completion of his high school studies and joined the Salesian Aspirantate and entered the novitiate in Beckford. After his profession in 1939 he went to the Missions in North India. He served the poor with great zeal and love till he died of cancer in 1997 at the age of 77. Even his tormenting suffering during his last illness that he bore with great patience and faith, testify to his sanctity. Just five years before his death he wrote a booklet on preparation for death. This touched many who read it.
There is already evidence of a miraculous event involved in a quick healing -from a serious illness- obtained through the intercession of Fr. Sheehy.
