Book of Condolence - Shane McGowan.

Closed 15 Dec 2023

Opened 30 Nov 2023


Lord Mayor of Dublin Daithí de Róiste has opened an online Book of Condolence for the citizens of Dublin to extend their sympathies to the family of Shane MacGowan.

The Lord Mayor said, “On behalf of the people of Dublin I would like to express my condolences to Shane MacGowan’s family and many friends. I knew he had been very ill but today’s news still came as a shock, as I’m sure it did to many of us. It is especially poignant that the writer of one of the most universally loved Christmas songs has passed away at this time of year.

Shane was truly a one-off and his loss will be felt by people right across this city and indeed the entire country. I have opened a book of condolence in the Mansion House for people who would like to leave a message for Shane’s family in person.

The Mansion House will be open for people to pay their respects from 2pm-5pm today, and Friday and Saturday between 11am and 5pm. Rest in Peace Shane and thanks for the music.
