An Irish priest who served an English parish for more than 30 years has left almost $1.5million in his will.

The late Canon Joseph Cahill was originally from Gurteen, Ballacolla, in County Laois and died in England last March.

Canon Cahill was the parish priest at St Vincent de Paul Church in Knutsford in the English diocese of Shrewsbury for over 30 years.

Details regarding the source of his estate’s value are unclear according to the Irish Independent reports.

However a spokesman for the Catholic Church in England has pointed out that any property Canon Cahill owned back home in Ireland would be included in the will.
