The death has been announced of former Tipperary Star journalist Jimmy Fogarty.

A native of Two-Mile-Borris, he worked in The Tipperary Star editorial department for a number of years before moving to establish his own print business in his native parish. He was involved in a number of local publications through the years and was always meticulous in his work.

A man who was steeped in the community in and around Two-Mile-Borris, Jimmy ensured that any organisation or club to which he belonged was given his full attention and support. He particularly loved sport with athletics and GAA commanding a great deal of his attention.

Jimmy is survived by his cousins, neighbours and many friends throughout mid Tipperary and further afield.

Funeral arrangements will be announced later.
