Sadness and shock at death of Warren (21)
POPULAR BARMAN WAS AN AVID SPORTSMAN
COMMUNITIES IN Bray, Enniskerry and Kilmacanogue, have been stricken with grief following the death of Warren Coster Coogan (21), who died suddenly and in tragic circumstances early last Saturday morning.
Warren, who was in his mother's Bray home when the tragedy occurred, was living recently in Dublin, and originally from Enniskerry. He also lived in Kilmacanogue for around six years during his teens.
He is survived by his heartbroken mother Yvonne Coster and father Warren Coogan as well as his two brothers and two sisters, cousins and relations.
Warren attended St. Mary's and St. Gerard's Primary School in Enniskerry and St. Kilian's Community School in Bray.
He was a popular barman in former Clancy's pub on Quinsboro Road, was also involved in a variety of sports during his life, and was known for an assortment of 10 tattoos.
Warren was an avid Manchester United Supporter, and cited Wayne Rooney amongst his favourite players, as well as FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi.
Kilmacanogue GAA and Enniskerry soccer club both cancelled their matches over the weekend as a mark of respect for the young man and his family.
‘He was a person who was full of energy, and fun loving,' recalled a friend, shocked by the loss of his childhood pal. ‘Nobody saw it coming.'
He will repose at Thomas Murphy and Sons Funeral Home, Boghall Road, from 11 a.m. this morning ( Wednesday), with removal at 2 p.m. to The Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, Enniskerry, arriving for the Funeral Mass at 2.30 p.m.
The ceremony will be followed by a cremation service in Mount Jerome Crematorium.
The late Warren Coster Coogan.
