Shock and sadness at sudden death of Kevin McGovern

THE Derrygonnelly community was left shocked and saddened following the death of one of its much loved residents Kevin McGovern.

Mr McGovern, formerly of Doagh, passed away suddenly on Sunday, January 21, aged just 49.

Born to parents Vera and the late Sean, Mr McGovern was a devoted family man.


He was a brother to John, Martin, Carmel and Donna and he enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephews. He took pride in being a godfather to Debhan (McGovern) and his niece Shauna.

Following his early education at St Patrick’s Primary School Derrygonnelly and St Joseph’s College Enniskillen, Mr McGovern worked as a labourer and a farmer.

Agriculture played an important part in his life. He was a dedicated farmer, caring for his cattle and sheep with the utmost care and attention.
