Death Of Garda Superintendent Tony Cogan

Late-Tony-CoganIt is with sincere regret we learned, early yesterday, of the death of Mr Anthony (Tony) Cogan, “Codagh”, The Willows, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

Originally a native of Co Sligo and a retired Superintendent of An Gárda Síochana here in Thurles, Mr Cogan died peacefully yesterday after a three year illness, which he bore always with extreme bravery.

Predeceased by his Father Bernard and sister Myra, Tony’s death will be greatly regretted by those members of numerous local and county organisations to which he greatly contributed both his time and vast expertise during his sojourn amongst us.

The Thurles community in particular now forward their deepest sympathy, at this time, to his loving wife Esther, his daughter Fiona, his two sons Kieran and Anthony, his Mother Bridie, mother-in-law Mary, brothers, Brian, Kieran and Gerard, sisters, Breedge, Kathleen, Deirdre and Martina, son-in-law James and step grandchildren Pádraig and Muireann, brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, relatives and his many, many friends and acquaintances.

His remains will repose at his home on Friday next, September 13th, from 3:00pm to 8:00pm, with removal on Saturday to The Cathedral of The Assumption, Thurles at 9:30am for Requiem Mass at 11:00am, followed by burial afterwards in Holycross Abbey Cemetery.

Family Flowers only please, with donations if desired, to North Tipperary Palliative Care.  His home will remain private all day Thursday and Saturday.

    So sorry to hear of Tony’s death. He was a gentleman to all who were lucky enough to pass his way. To his wife Ester and their children, I would like to offer my condolences and prayers.
    Tony, it was a pleasure to have known you. May the sod of Holycross lie softly above you.
    Paul.

    Very, very sad to hear of Tony’s death. Only last November he drove our wedding car and was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish – a gentleman in the truest sense. Best wishes and sincere sympathies to his wife and family during this time. Rest in peace my friend.
