Death of Nenagh man in tragic accident

News of the death of a Nenagh man in a tragic accident in Finland has occasioned great sadness in the local community.

Eimantas ‘Monty’ Kosovas of Millersbrook died last Saturday following an accident while on holiday in the northern region of Lapland with his partner and two close friends. Working as a carer at Nenagh Manor Nursing Home, he would have turned 28 next March.

News of his death has shocked many people in Nenagh, evidenced in the messages of condolence left online, many of which referenced the great care Eimantas had given to people at Nenagh Manor. His long-term partner Alana Duffy posted a message on Facebook, in which she expressed “disbelief” over Monty’s death.

“He unfortunately suffered a brain haemorrhage while on holidays with us in Lapland,” Alana wrote. “There are no words to describe how lost and heartbroken I am. Monty was so selfless and always put others before himself; he was so loved by everyone and was the most genuine person you could ever meet; he was everything to me as I was to him and I miss him so much. Life will never be the same without him.”

Alana and Monty’s family set up an online fundraising page to help bring him home. “Any donations are extremely appreciated,” she wrote on Wednesday. “Thanks everyone for all the sweet messages.”

Donations are still being accepted on the idonate.ie webpage ‘Help Bring Eimantas Home’.

Eimantas is much-loved and sadly missed by his loving parents Vilma and Kestutis, brother Aivaras, girlfriend Alana, grandparents Maryte, Nina, Konstantinos, many friends, relatives, uncles and aunts.

Funeral arrangements later. May he rest in peace.
