It is with great sadness that I must inform you that Fr Dolan, Chair of Governors, passed away on Thursday evening. Fr Dolan was an absolute inspiration to us all, and the greatest witness to the values and mission of Newman College. He will be greatly missed but lives on in the ethos of the college and in the Newman family.
