Stuart Mangan, the 26 year old from Fermoy in Co. Cork, who suffered a severe spinal injury while playing rugby in London in April 2008, has sadly passed away.
He was taken to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London as a result of respiratory problems and passed away peacefully on Friday 7th August 2009 in the presence of his parents Brian and Una and his three brothers Keith, John and Barry.
During his short life Stuart showed incredible energy, enthusiasm and love for people. In the period following his accident he inspired many with his courage and greatly increased his circle of friends. In this way, he has left us all a great legacy.
The family would like to thank all those who supported them, especially his doctors, nurses and carers. The kindness and generosity shown by people was simply amazing.
In response to Stuart’s wishes, his organs were donated for the benefit of others. May he rest in peace.
