“Tony’s vision was of a community of believers where those who suffer and are troubled or who fall into sin and distress or who feel abandoned are never rejected but are encountered with love and mercy and support,” Martin said.

“We have heard in these days many people tell their own stories of what Tony meant for them,” he added.

We get a glimpse of the enormity of the priestly ministry of Tony over 28 years, in Ballymun, in UCD and here in this area.  For Tony it was not a question of enormity, but of a myriad of individual simple gestures of kindness and support, of love and respect for young and old, for the conventional and the unconventional, for the orthodox and the unorthodox.

Fr Coote will be buried today after mass in the Church of St. Thérèse.

In May, he published a book Live While You Can and was the subject of RTÉ documentary Walking the Walk, which chronicled his walk through Donegal, Sligo, Mayo, Galway, Clare, Limerick and Cork to raise money for research and treatment of motor neurone disease.

In recent days, various people have paid tribute to Fr Coote, including fellow members of the clergy and Minister for Culture Josepha Madigan.
