The late Lindsey Cott (née Fallon)

Local community devastated at tragic passing of Athlone woman

There was widespread sadness in Athlone and in her adopted community of Castlemagner, north Cork at the tragic passing of 37-year old Lindsey Cott (née Fallon) which took place in the Mater Hospital yesterday (Tuesday).

Lindsey, who is daughter of Johnny and Tina Fallon from Sarsfield Square in Athlone, was on the heart transplant waiting list in the Mater Hospital since February 3 last, but sadly lost her brave fight for life before a donor heart could be found.

The mother of two young boys passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family. She had made her home in the townsland of Churchfield, Castlemagner in north Cork with her husband, Jack Cott, and her young family in recent years.

In a touching tribute in her death notice, she was described as “showing as much courage, stoicism and grace in passing as she showed empathy, kindness and generosity in life.”

Lindsey’s passing at such a young age leaves her family and friends bereft, most especially her husband, Jack, sons, Johnny and Bob, parents, Johnny and Tina, her siblings, Lucinda, Kayleigh and Jonathon, parents in law, Johnny and Una, relatives and a very wide circle of friends.

Requiem mass for Lindsey Cott, which will be for family only, will be live- streamed on from St Mary’s Church, Castlemagner this Friday, February 26, at 2pm.

The family have requested no flowers, but have asked for donations, in lieu, to the Irish Heart Foundation.
