EH...Father Stack..the bully Catholic priestI think BG was bilocating between Ireland and Florida for years--mostly the latter. His cancer was only announced in the last couple of weeks, tho he probably had it longer. Bottler was a Battler, but this was one he couldn't win.
I have the impression he avoided the filth and anti-Catholicism that is now stock in trade for Irish comics such as Tiernan etc.
Ar dheis De go raibh se.
