Templemore is mourning the loss of one of its great characters

A man with a great sense of humour and fun, he was known all over as a great character.

The people of Templemore and the surrounding areas are today in mourning following news of the passing of Mr. Billy Costigan, Park View West, Templemore.

A very highly thought of individual who was known throughout the length and breadth of the parish of Templemore  and indeed county Tipperary, Billy was a great community man who was involved in many local organisations including the likes of Tops of the Towns, Templemore flooding project and the GAA.
