'Ann, your life was a blessing'

TRIBUTES have been made in memory of Ann Hogg who, “much loved” and well-known for her kindness, compassion and friendship, passed away on Monday night, November 27. 

Ann worked on The Square courtesy desk for 18 years and was a long-standing member of Tallaght Theatre, with the mother-of-two highly praised for her performance of Shirley Valentine in a one-woman show a few years back.
