Passing of widely respected Castlebar personality

THE death has taken place of long time Castlebar resident Michael Brogan (98) of Springfield.

Mr. Brogan passed away in Mayo University Hospital after a very short illness and his death came as a shock to his large extended family.

The deceased was a native of Pulladoohey, Crossmolina, and he came to Castlebar in the 1960s with his wife Maud and they soon became an integral part of life in the county capital.

He had a great love for the motor trade and for many years sold cars from his home in Springfield. He was a wonderful friend and neighbour to all in the area and made many friends of all ages.

Michael was predeceased by his wife Maud in 2015.

Deepest sympathy is extended to his nephews, nieces, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, relatives and friends.

His remains will be reposing at Coady's Funeral Home, Castlebar, tomorrow (Tuesday) evening from 4 p.m. with removal at 6 p.m. to St. Tiernan's Church, Crossmolina, arriving at 7 p.m. approximately.

Requiem Mass takes place on Wednesday at 12 noon with burial afterwards in Crossmolina Cemetery.

May his gentle soul rest in peace.
