The 'collection' of the late Castlebridge priest Fr Walter Forde is due to go for sale at an auction in Castlecomer, Co. Kilkenny, next week.

Fr Forde's estate 'collection' is included in Mealy's Autumn Sale which is due to take place on Tuesday, October 20, and Wednesday, October 21.

Mealys said that while Fr Forde's articles were in the auction list, they were not in a position to disclose which of the 1,400 lots were his.

The popular priest, late of Castlebridge and Clonattin, Gorey, died in June at his home in Gorey in June at the age of 72. A native of Bunclody, he was ordained in 1968
