One of the most respected members of the community


Kilworth Parish received yet another severe shock when the news of the death after a short illness, of yet another one of its most respected and well known citizens the late Mrs. Sheila Hogan of Heaphy's Grove got around.

The late Sheila was predeceased by her husband Peter in 2002, he was well known as a Trout Angler in the Kilworth area and for many years Peter could be seen in local papers on winning angling teams at competitions on all the local rivers around, he was also the regular goalkeeper on the Kilworth hurling teams for many years during the forties and early fifties.

Their home at Knockanohill in Kilworth was always the envy of passers by such was the beauty of their garden always, a feature that no doubt Sheila herself played a big part in maintaining. After the death of Peter, Sheila moved in to live in Heaphy's Grove in Kilworth to where she brought her own special talents to good use, having taken up art in her later years, Sheila often donated her work to local raffles etc especially at The Village Arts Centre of which she was a great supporter from day one.

She also found time to play Pitch and Putt and was an officer of the local Active Retirement Group in Kilworth. A staunch Kilworth lady, she supported every club and organisation over her years,

The late Sheila is survived by her sisters Hannah (Keane), and Kitty (Gallagher), her nieces and nephews, relatives and her many good friends to whom we extend our sincere sympathy, Her Requiem Mass was celebrated in St Martin's Church Kilworth and she was laid to rest in Kilcrumper New Cemetery in Fermoy.
