The last link to our 1947 county senior hurling success has sadly been forever broken with the passing of Jimmy Hogan, Jimmy who was in his 88th year was in good health up until the last few weeks and his passing still comes as a shock to all who knew him. A gifted hurler Jimmy won many medals with the Swan and was on the Tipperary minor panel of 1946 when they won the  Munster title only to lose narrowly to Dublin in the All Ireland Final. He was also a Tipperary selector with the winning Intermediate team of 1972. Jimmy gave a lot back  to Carrick Swan GAA Club after his playing days had ended and he was a brilliant motivator when he managed many of our teams, he was also a great Chairman who gave wonderful leadership to the club. Jimmy was pre-deceased by his son Seamus, brothers Stevie and Nicky and his sisters Kitty and Maggie His passing is felt very much in the Swan Club but more so by his family and our sympathy goes to his wife Kitty, sons Thomas and Declan, daughters Kay and Helen and the extended family.

Funeral arrangements as follows, reposing in Walsh’s Funeral home on Thursday from 4.30pm and leaving at 6.30pm for   St. Nicholas Church, following 10.30am mass on Friday burial will take place in St. Mary’s Cemetery.
