Mother Of The Pogues’ Shane MacGowan Is Killed In Car Crash | Music News



Shane MacGowan, of The Pogues, is in grieving after the loss of his mother. Therese MacGowan died 87 near Ballintogher, Ireland, on New Year’s Day and the circumstances surrounding it are being described as a “tragic accident”. Police added that this was “a single car collision with a wall”. She passed away at Limerick University Hospital.


Not only was she mother of The Pogues frontman, but also his sister, Siobhan MacGowan, a musician, too, plus journalist. Of course, Shane has suffered, albeit less serious, issues with his own health. This includes battles with drink and drugs, resulting in expensive dental surgery. There was also a fall whereby he suffered a severe pelvic injury back in 2015.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
